Why I am a Financial Advisor
After wrestling my way through micro and macro economics in college (admittedly odd for an Econ major), I ventured out into the real world and found myself working as a branch manager of the General Foods, and later Kraft Foods, Federal Credit Union. In my almost 8 years there, I particularly enjoyed helping members make smart decisions with their money.
Our focus was on quality service, instead of churning profits, so it was here that I truly learned the value of solid financial advice. Those lessons, like managing stock options, trickle down into my business every day as I help clients make decisions that have significant impact on their financial futures.
As I founded my own firm, the economic theories I knew from college, coupled with what I learned in the workforce, suddenly came together. I understood how markets work, and more importantly, that no one will ever know more than the markets themselves. Ken French’s famous quote rang true:
“The market is smarter than we are and no matter how smart we get, the market will always be smarter than we are.”
So came my calling: to help people understand that they can have a great investment experience if they understand what is truly important.
I’ve made it my goal to guide people to recognize the truth from the fluff and misconceptions that permeate our industry.
Now I can walk the line between Wall Street and Main Street everyday, helping people just like you along the way. And at the end of the day, that’s what really matters.

Personalized Financial Advice
