A financial planner since 2007, I take great pride in working with my clients on complex topics in a way that is easy to understand. That way, we can collaborate on creating the best plan possible for their unique life situation and help get them to the retirement they deserve. When I am not at work, I enjoy playing paddle tennis with friends, spending time with my family and am active in community service in my hometown of Darien, Connecticut.

About Future You Wealth LLC

Future You Wealth LLC

Future You Wealth is for high-earning professionals, through all life stages, who want to make the most of their life and money. We offer comprehensive wealth management services that will help you save for your future and achieve your financial goals. With our help, you can rest easy knowing that you have a guide and a partner on the path to financial independence. Client engagements are comprised of three key components: (i) Planning: building a baseline understanding as to where you are going, and how you are most efficiently going to get there. The primary goal we work towards is financial independence by a target age, affording you the freedom to direct your time as you desire. (ii) Investing: implementing the plan using evidence-based, low-cost strategic asset allocations, tailored to the needs of the individual. Portfolios are rebalanced periodically to remain in line with the investment plan, and tax efficiency is front of mind. (iii) Coaching: sticking to the plan and goals requires accountability, and we're our clients' accountability partner. Any time a life decision comes up that has financial implications, we are here to help, for example buying a home, getting married, starting a family, exercising incentive stock options, changing job or starting a business. Throughout our clients' wealth journey, we keep the "beyond wealth" principle front of mind: our approach to wealth management is not just about building more wealth, but also about how best to use that wealth to live a great life.
