My Approach

My goal is to empower my clients with a solid, actionable financial plan to allow them to enjoy an active and successful retirement – on their own terms. I will put my experience to work for you developing investment, tax planning and estate planning strategies – all aimed at maintaining your financial independence and lifestyle. You've worked hard. Now, as retirement approaches, it's your turn to redefine the second half of your life.

Whether you're looking for investment strategies, retirement income, funding for your child's education, or estate or tax planning strategies, we'll work with you on your terms. We offer a broad range of financial products and services including mutual funds and certificates, as well as brokerage services and financial planning. We also offer flexibility in the way you work with us: online, with the help of an advisor, or both. The choice is yours.



  • Running: I grew up as a swimmer and a water polo playter. A few years ago I started running (jogging and walking). This year I am preparing to run my 2nd full marathon in the fall of 2015.
  • Tennis: My wife and I both enjoy USTA singles and doubles. This year I captained two teams while playing some.
  • Movies: My wife and I are cinema buffs and enjoy date nights at the theatre.
  • Extras: I also like to camp, swim, pilates exercises, and lift weights when I can find the time.
