  • Babson College - Bachelor of Science, Finance and Statistics, 2003


Like many of my clients, family is my focus — and the reason I work as hard as I do. After graduating from Babson College, I married my wife Dana and we moved back to California so that we could be closer to our families. We have three adventurous little boys, Maxwell, Wyatt and Everett, along with a pair of dogs to keep them busy.

I’m a competitive person who enjoys playing tennis, cycling and golf. A growing interest in wine parallels my work, as both benefit from careful planning and patient aging. We also love spending time together outdoors as a family in Southern California’s beautiful parks and beaches.
