As a local resident of Upland/Rancho Cucamonga area since 1998, I am truly passionate about helping my community. As a family man, I aspire to help other families in reaching their financial goals. My experience in the financial services industry started back in August of 2002. I have been working with Edward Jones as a financial advisor since 2009.

During my career development in the financial services sector, I invested much of my time and efforts to also increase my knowledge about this industry. I find that investing in one's knowledge and continuous growth is key. I completed my bachelor's degree through Cal Poly Pomona in 2006, majoring in finance, real estate and business law. Thereafter, I focused on further pursuing my knowledge by seeking to obtain my CFP® certification. I attended UCLA Extension in Los Angeles and obtained my certificate in March of 2009. I sat for the Board exam in July and successfully passed. I continued my education in the financial services industry by obtaining my Master of Science, with a focus in financial planning, at Kansas State University in May of 2013.

I have held numerous important leadership roles within Edward Jones. As of 2023, I became a principal at Edward Jones.

I have been also involved in local leadership roles, such as serving on the board of directors for Upland Chamber of Commerce, Azusa Pacific University visits and in an adjunct professor role.

I am married to my wonderful wife, Araxi Ognaian, and we have two wonderful children, my daughter, Adaline, and my son, Christian. As mentioned, I am invested heavily in this career, my community and above all, my family. As a main focus in my business, I best serve individuals either preparing or starting retirement. This transition is extremely crucial in having everything set up according to your goals. I look forward to having the opportunity to serve you and your family.
