Tell us about your work.
“Having worked with affluent families in Orange County and Los Angeles for more than 20 years, I manage more than $500 million in client assets. As an experienced CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, I also assist wealthy families in putting together comprehensive financial plans—all while making sure the investments are in line with their short- and long-term financial goals. When needed, I coordinate with other professionals, such as estate attorneys and tax advisors. I am extremely detailed, and no rock goes unturned.”
How did you choose to work in this industry?
“During college, I heard a financial advisor speak at a finance club meeting, and I was immediately hooked. I landed an internship at Smith Barney a few weeks later and have never looked back. I started my career with nothing more than a pen and an idea: Become the best financial advisor in the country. By working countless hours to better serve my clients, I am proud to have an extremely successful practice today. I am a planner by nature, so I enjoy working with clients, and creating comprehensive and robust financial plans.”
In what ways has your work exceeded expectations?
“I made the Forbes Best-In-State Wealth Advisors list in 2019, 2020 and most recently in 2021, when I was ranked #7 in California.”
How do you deepen your relationships with clients?
“I have built my practice around being a financial ‘concierge’ to my clients, and in doing so I understand that building and maintaining wealth goes beyond numbers and investments. I maintain an open dialogue with my clients throughout the year, year after year, which not only allows me to tailor their financial plans to meet their needs, but together we can coordinate for larger expenses as the needs arise. I find that being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to investment and liquidity needs has helped deepened my clients’ trust in me–even during times of market volatility.”
How do you help clients feel they are in good hands?
“In addition to personal financial planning, I believe it is equally important to prioritize family financial goals. As of late, I have been talking about wealth with my clients’ children and grandchildren. Historically, this has been a delicate subject, but I find that many clients would like assistance in having these conversations. I have been doing my part to help clients navigate this subject.
In times like these, it makes sense to have multiple sources of liquidity—not only for you but for your loved ones. As a holistic financial planner, I go beyond the numbers when making recommendations to clients. Having access to different sources of cash when you need it most will provide the flexibility needed to maintain a strong financial portfolio.”
Tell us about your family.
“My wife and I moved to Newport Coast in 2012 and enjoy every day with our two boys, Lucca and Nicco, and our goofy goldendoodle, Bentley. Our baby girl, Gianna, is due in early November, and we could not be more excited.”
