What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be an Architect. Maybe this came from my early years of building those forts. I loved to imagine and draw the designs. With my analytical mindset, the angles and measurements, simply fascinated me. While I don’t design dream houses today, I do feel that I use a number of those skills to design plans to help people reach their financial goals. Often times it takes painting a picture of the future, to get people to take action so they can realize their financial dreams.


What is your favorite hobby/what do you like to do in your free time?

I love Futbol (Soccer). Not only watching professional matches, but I have played the sport since I was 5 years old and continue to play in both Co-ed and Men’s competitive leagues. Great exercise, competitive fun, and a real camaraderie with my teammates.


Where is your dream vacation spot?

Spain. My wife and I would like to take a trip to the southern coast of Spain. Not only to enjoy the warm weather on the beach and great food, but also to potentially catch a professional soccer match with Real Madrid or Barcelona.
