As a 49-year-old financial advisor with 26 years of experience, I have a unique combination of "youth" and knowledge to help guide your family toward its financial goals. Having attained my Chartered Financial Consultant® in 2002, I am both knowledgeable and seasoned but, at the same time, not stuck in my ways. We treat every client as though they are our most important client.
Born on a Marine base in Yuma, AZ and raised in Sarasota since 1979, I graduated from Riverview High School in 1991. A full academic/athletic scholarship took me away from Florida to play soccer. I graduated with degrees in accounting and finance from Mercer University in 1995.
After graduation, I returned home to start my financial career. Most important to me, I've been devoted to my wife, Maureen, and our three children: Joey, Will and Kate. I coached our oldest and youngest at FC Sarasota soccer for four years each. I have also been very active with our other son and his baseball travels. I feel very blessed to have been able to spend such quality time with my kids. In October 2021, I took on the role of head coach for my alma mater, Riverview High girls varsity soccer (2021-present), so I could give back to the school and community.
In addition, I am very proud to be a founding board member for The Mark Wandall Foundation, established in memory of one of my best friends who was killed by a red light runner. The organization focuses on children who have lost a family member(s) and raises money each year to help the children move through grief, at our 3-day grief camp.
This is near and dear to my heart, as my mom was killed in an auto accident when I was 2 years old. My dad is a Marine, so he and I survived – we "got by." In many ways, that made me who I am today, and I accept that whole-heartedly. While I embrace it, I don't want that for my family; that is, to just "get by." I invest as if I'm going to live to be 100 years old, but I insure myself as if I could be gone at any moment.
It is through careful planning that I protect my most important asset – my family. Allow me to help you and your family by reviewing your investment and insurance portfolios.
