About Me

I always wanted to do exactly what I’m doing now – helping people plan and implement towards financial and career independence.


It started in earnest at my first internship, a non profit’s financial counseling branch. We specialized in credit counseling for people who really had nowhere else to go. Tough conversations and real stories abound, I’ve been chasing that sense of personal fulfillment ever since. I love helping people.


After a few experiences as an employee at large banks (i.e. Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank.) and helping manage the investments of both my university’s endowment and a Registered Investment Advisory practice out of the state of Washington, I came to a hard hitting realization.
