I am originally from the North Texas area and began working in my mid-20's under a Certified Financial Planner in the insurance industry in early 1979. I met my (British) wife, Thea, in Kansas City in 1977 and we were married the next year. I began to study the CFP courses through the College For Financial Planning (Denver) and became a Certified Financial Planner in mid-1983. We traveled to Colorado several times in the 1980's to attend continuing education conferences put on by the College For Financial Planning and that's when Thea and I began to dream of relocating here.
Expanding my 20-year practice from Texas into Colorado allowed that dream to be fulfilled in 1998. I continue to stay abreast of the ever-changing investment, economic, and retirement planning fields through constant study. My focus over the last 20 years has been macro-economic research. Ive seen how my appraisals of macro- economic trends have benefited my clients' portfolios, especially in late 1999 and early 2008. At Financial Planning Strategies weve established a system of dynamically-adjusted, asset allocation strategies similar to the management of many university endowments.
Historically, this special asset-synergism reduces volatility while enhancing returns. My wife has been my clerical assistant since 1979 and is also the mother of my two married daughters, Elissa and Rebecca. In 2015 we became proud grandparents of Aaron, our first grandchild. All seven of us in our expanding family enjoy going to 11-Mile Reservoir to kayak, and to enjoy boating and mountain biking.
