My Story and Services

Confidence, Simplicity and Action

Financial Confidence

My professional goal is to simplify the mystery around finance and investments while delivering a strategy that meets your personal and professional needs.  I want to take the guesswork out of your financial journey.  I meet far too many people who say they ‘hope’ to _____ or ‘wish’ that _____.  My clients feel confident in what goals are specifically achievable and have a plan designed to get there. 

Simple & Easy

We will build a personal roadmap to help achieve success and I will be your trusted guide along the journey.  We will use our powerful LifeView software that will help identify what is possible and probable in a visual format.  As your Portfolio Manager and Financial Advisor, I will use the data from LifeView as a framework to make decisions about opportunity vs safety.  With my constant monitoring of your portfolio and our regular reviews of the plan, you can go about life making decisions from a position of confidence and empowerment.

Let’s Meet

I love meeting new people.  In a short conversation we will be able to determine if we are a good fit for each other.  If we are, I will deliver the above in a simplified, personalized and cost effective manner.  I look forward to hearing from you so that I can put my skills and experience to work for you.

I enjoy auto racing through ICSCC, SCCA and NASA.  After years of running PRO3 in the Northwest I have recently enjoyed success in SCCA's T3 class in my Spec E46 as well as winning the 25 Hours of Thunderhill E1 class in both 2015 and 2016.

Teachers and Parents

My wife and I have taken the plunge and we are going to Home School our kids for 2nd and 3rd grades this year.  If you have experience or want to share experiences I would be glad to discuss.  My wife will be doing the heavy lifting in this area but I will be participating in the areas I can and backing her up when appropriate.  Our older daughters are out of school and one has given us a granddaughter, the schools are just different now and we are ready to try something new - wish us luck and really, any advice is welcome.

The Great Outdoors

Our family likes to spend a lot of time outdoors, whether that be in Lake Washington, the Olympic & Cascade mountains, the beaches of Florida or anywhere in between.  We have an RV and like to go outside to discover all the great wonders of our environment.  The learning is great for the kids which we hope to add value back into their education while having family time together.
