Growing up in India, I observed my dad's work ethic, managing a travel agency that was located out of the country, in order to provide for the family. I have inherited this quality from my dad and value the importance of hard work. My compassion for helping others and deepening relationships comes from my mom, who raised six sons.
My wife, Mary, and I live in Seminole County and have two children, Alia and Noah. Alia has the same passion as me in helping others and has joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor. Noah is pursuing a career as a commercial pilot and is currently a certified flight instructor at L3 Communications. Mary works as an elementary school teacher in Seminole County Public Schools. As a family, we enjoy traveling, world cuisine, movies, tennis and volunteering.
To be of service to the community at large, I serve as an active member of SERTOMA (Service To Mankind), on the advisory board of Seminole County Public Schools, Seminole State College and American Muslim Partnership, on the board of trustees for city of Winter Springs, as VP for Casselberry Police Foundation and past president of the Casselberry Chamber of Commerce.
I have been with Edward Jones since 2009 and am honored to serve as a field trainer, mentor, growth leader and currently the diversity, equity and inclusion leader for the region.
I hold a Bachelor of Science, Master of Business Administration and CFP® designation from the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., as well as the AAMS® and CRPS® designations.
My branch office administrator, Evonne Thompson, and I started together over a decade ago and have embraced our unique culture of providing personalized, tailored service to help our clients reach all their financial goals. We would be honored to partner with you throughout your life to help you achieve your financial goals.
