My Approach

I am passionate about working with my clients and want them to experience financial confidence now and in retirement. I will look at your entire financial picture — cash reserves, debt management, investments, protection and taxes, ask targeted questions and listen closely to your answers. I want you to feel confident that the advice I provide reflects your unique dreams and goals.



  • I enjoy travel, cooking, gardening, and history.
  • I like to watch independent movies and documentaries.
  • I am a big fan of baseball (SF Giants) and football (SF 49ers).
  • I embrace Environmental and Social Guidance factors in my clients' investment portfolios (Socially Responsible Investments).
  • I enjoy spending time with my wife and 2 children.
