Mike's mission is to support and advise his clients on reaching their financial goals. Mike generally works with clients who are corporate executives, small business owners, or are transitioning through a life event (retirement, divorce, inheritance, etc.). From spedning over a decade at a large global bank to founding Veracity Capital, Mike is keenly aware of the risks, rewards, and complexities that his clients face. Mike sees the client and advisor relationship similar to a partnership, where communication, transparency, and preparation are crucial to success. He believes that no two clients have the same financial goals, so no two clients should have the same plan. Because of this, Mike works with a lower number of clients and selectively focuses on those that can benefit from his skill set. As a founding partner of Veracity Capital, Mike also enjoys developing other advisors in the firm and helping them grow. Mike also serves the finance function as CFO of Veracity Capital. Prior to Veracity Capital, Mike spent 11 years working at Goldman Sachs, in the AYCO division where he advised his clients. Mike earned a Bachelor of Science in Business from California State University, Northridge, and an MBA from Chapman University.

Matthew V. Pixa is the President and founder of My Portfolio Guide, LLC. Matt Pixa grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and at a very young age learned from a World War II Veteran father who grew up in the Great Depression that money and resources are to be managed prudently. Matt's curiosity and passion for investing was further sparked during the stock market crash of 1987. Being a new investor without any guidance and coupled with the dramatic events of that period, an interest and passion for becoming a student of the markets was born. Matt studied Economics and earned a Bachelor's degree while also competing as a student-athlete for California State University Long Beach. After advancing his career for 12 years he decided to return to graduate school and further his business and finance education by earning an MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. Matt Pixa lives in Seal Beach, CA with his wife Cecilia, daughter Isabel, and son Lance. As a family the Pixas are involved in several Orange County charities, through their church at Saint Joseph, and with several non-profits such as Care for the Poor and Taller San Jose. Matt enjoys coaching youth sports for his children's teams and also competes in Ironman triathlons as a way to stay fit, disciplined, and blow off any left over energy.

Michael was born in Santa Monica and raised outside Philadelphia. At Georgetown, he double-majored in finance and small business management. Somehow, he found time to play varsity baseball, too. After college he worked for Vanguard, improving their mutual fund accounting programs. Then he moved to California, joined Alliance Bernstein, and participated in one of the industry's most esteemed advisor training programs.
After earning his MBA at UCLA, Michael joined Westmount in 2011, attracted by a culture of people "humble and intellectually curious, yet courageous enough to blaze a new independent trail in our industry." He credits his grandfather, who emigrated from Italy as a young man and opened a shoemaking business in Elizabeth, New Jersey, for inspiring many of the personal financial principles he still operates by today.
