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.



As board members of Parental Care Ministries, my wife and I are involved with the care of some 1800 orphans in the country of Uganda, Africa. These children, thanks to this wonderful organization now have a home, clothing, three meals per day, and an educational opportunity.

We are also the proud parents of our son and daughter: Matthew, who has just completed his CPA exams and is living in Houston, TX, and Courtney, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, living in New York City, NY.
