Clients I specialize in: Attorneys and accountants, Doctors, Retirees

As a Private Wealth Advisor, I help my clients define their goals and understand their options. Then I partner with them to create tailored wealth management strategies. My clients' wealth plans include the right mix of investment management, trust and estate services, and private banking to meet their unique needs and preferences.

I've worked in the banking and financial services industry since 2003. I help clients succeed by taking time to understand their unique needs. I direct teams of specialists — often working closely with other client advisors, such as attorneys and accountants — to provide services that help my clients work toward their goals.

I live in San Diego, and serve clients in San Diego. I enjoy camping, the outdoors and spending time with my family and friends.

FAQ

The role of a financial advisor can go beyond investment planning. An advisor can also provide guidance for key moments throughout your life. Perhaps your finances have gotten more complex, and you’d like help creating or adjusting your wealth plan. You may be worried how market changes are affecting your investments. Or you’re experiencing a major life event, such as:

  • Getting married or divorced
  • Having a child
  • Starting a new career
  • Receiving an inheritance
  • Buying a house
  • Nearing retirement

An advisor can help you objectively assess where you are financially and how to prepare for the future as you work toward your goals.

Your advisor will ask about your goals and priorities – where you’re at today, financially, and where you'd like to go. But the main topic of conversation will be whatever’s on your mind. You can discuss how you and your advisor will work together, what you can expect from your advisor, any costs if you decide to move forward, and next steps. You’ll have plenty of time to ask questions, to help you decide if the relationship is the right fit.

No, your initial consultation is free.

We’ll confirm with you what materials, such as recent bank and financial statements, may be helpful for understanding your financial picture. But it’s your choice what to bring. To help you decide – and to ensure you get the most out of the conversation with your advisor – consider the following before the meeting:

  • What are your most important financial goals?
  • What concerns you about your finances?
  • Did you recently experience a major life event?

We’re happy to meet with you virtually or in person. It’s up to you.
