Honored to receive recognition

I’m honored to announce I’ve received a 2022 Five Star Wealth Manager award! This award recognizes wealth management professionals who provide excellent service to their clients.

Many thanks to my colleagues for their continued support, my clients for placing their trust in me, and Five Star Professional for the recognition.

Community participation

I am passionate about multiple causes and volunteer my time and resources to various organizations including the Metropolitan Educational Theater (MET 2), City of Hope, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and various programs dealing with the recovery of drug and alcohol addiction.


    My wife, Shawna, and I are blessed to have 2 wonderful daughters. Olivia is a film student at DePaul University in Chicago. Faith is entering the 10th grade. Like most parents, it seems like every moment of our free time is spent keeping up with the kids many activities. Most weekends we will be found at a competitive cheer competition, an equestrian ring or a theater, where I enjoy performing in musicals along side one or both of my kids. When not following the kids around, we love to take road trips that usually end up in Mammoth, the beach, or a concert of one of our favorite bands. We absolutely insist on enjoying life!
