I'm a dedicated financial planner who loves to educate my clients and help them achieve their financial goals. My entire family lives in Northern California, and even though I've lived and worked in California and Arizona, Northern California has always been my home. I'm happily married to my wife, Belinda, and we welcomed our first child, Lukas, in 2021.
