About me

As a financial planner, my role is to analyze and monitor my clients’ finances to help them maximize the income that will be available to them for the rest of their lives. Before focusing on finance, I served as an aviator in the U.S. Navy for eight years. I still fly actively today as a private pilot. I also enjoy downhill skiing, windsurfing and solving escape room puzzles with my family.
