My Story and Services

My Story

I began my career at the largest financial firm in Mexico before immigrating to the United States in 2000. I have spent the past 20 years honing my skills to understand and advise clients in budgeting, planning, investing and making smart choices about their finances to last well into the future.

I understand what it is like to be an international client.  I also understand what it is like to succeed at an early age in a new country, where you may not speak the language or know the customs.  I am here to help you understand the system, solve problems and make smart financial decisions.  My job is to help you protect your money, provide for your family and invest for the future so you can keep living the life you dreamed when you began your career.

Global Sports & Entertainment

I am a proud member of Morgan Stanley Global Sports & Entertainment, a division committed to serving the complex financial needs of professional athletes and entertainers.  Our division was created because every sports and entertainment profession is unique, with its own characteristics, earning profile and career span. Our clients need Sports and Entertainment Directors who know their industry and how money flows from their work to their wallet.

Like all of my fellow Sports and Entertainment Directors, I was chosen for my advanced experience working in very specific fields.   One of my specific fields is professional baseball players from Latin America.  I understand the unique financial challenges of major league players and can craft customized financial strategies that are tailored to their needs.  Delivering the powerful resources of Morgan Stanley, one of the world’s leading financial services firms, I work to translate our client’s goals into a financial strategy designed to help grow assets, preserve wealth and ensure a successful financial life and legacy.


Another of my specific fields is International Wealth Specialist.  As a certified International Client Advisor, I bring my first-hand global perspective to meet the comprehensive financial management needs of non-resident clients.  Financial regulations and laws vary from country to country and often change with the prevailing political winds.  My up-to-date knowledge of these requirements, along with a familiarity of other countries’ cultural norms, allows me to provide the situation-specific advice my clients require.  I collaborate with their tax and legal advisors to coordinate financial strategies, estate planning and other issues unique to them.

Working With You

Working With You

I begin by understanding your life and your priorities.  Then I use my experience and insight along with my knowledge of international financial markets to create a strategy that suits you. My job is to help you navigate the world of budgeting, planning and investing to create the kind of financial foundation that can last far into the future.

This client-centered approach allows me to serve a diverse clientele that includes many professional athletes, as well as high-net-worth / ultra-high-net-worth national and international clients.  You can depend on me to work closely with your other key advisors - lawyers, agents and accountants - to understand your unique financial picture and make decisions based on your best interests.  Whether you want me to manage every aspect of your financial life or you prefer to be more actively involved, I will always tailor my services to what works for you.
