Family has always been a motivating factor in my life.

I began my career in the financial services industry in 2003 after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA. I had a strong desire to guide my parents to retirement since they worked extremely hard but hadn't yet built a comprehensive plan to achieve that goal. That desire, combined with the knowledge I received from my economics classes at UCLA, made becoming a financial advisor a natural career choice.

I originally started working for an independent wealth manager in Beverly Hills and I quickly realized that I needed to find a firm that was more client centric and had more resources available for me to guide my clients towards their goals. After a lot of research, I found that Edward Jones not only offered everything I was looking for in a firm (great culture, family oriented, effective tools and processes), but had also consistently earned many awards for client satisfaction. It was an easy choice to join Edward Jones in September of 2004.

After almost two years of training in our home office in St Louis, MO, I chose to make my home in Rancho Cucamonga to serve this wonderful community and have lived and worked here since July of 2006.

A lot has changed since then. The community has grown tremendously, as have I. I began my career as a single man and am now a husband to my beautiful wife, Veronica, and a father to three wonderful children -- Jaiden, Ariana and Emilia -- and our dog, Dodger. I'm also proud to say my parents have since retired.

Family continues to be a huge motivation -- my own, the families of the new financial advisors I hire and train as a field trainer and a hiring team member, and the families of all the amazing clients I've met over the years.

Along with my branch office administrator, Jennifer Talancon (who has been with me since July of 2006), I look forward to meeting with you and doing my part in helping turn your family's financial goals into reality.
