My family has farmed in Sutter and Meridian since the 1850s. I am still actively involved in our family farm. My interest in being a financial advisor stemmed from my desire to manage our family's wealth effectively.

My vision is to help people maximize their potential. That is why I am actively involved in community organizations such as the hospital foundation and Rotary. It is also why I coached, photographed and videoed youth sports for 20 years and why I serve my clients as their financial advisor.

My office mission is to help clients organize, protect, grow and transfer wealth. My education from being a mechanical engineer at UC Davis and earning an MBA from Columbia University, alongside my CFP® certification and my training at Edward Jones, has allowed me to continuously improve my service as a financial advisor. I believe that we need to continuously strive to improve and grow both personally and professionally.

I am married to Gina Burke Tarke, who is also active in the community. I have two sons: Franklin is working as a mechanical engineer, and Leighton is attending college. They also share my philosophy of continuous improvement in whatever they do and the importance of serving others to live a happy and productive life.
