              I have vivid memories of sitting on my grandfather’s lap, watching him trade stocks on the green screen of his computer. This is where my passion for finance started. From there, I began my life-long learning about the stock market and received my degree in economics with a concentration in risk and portfolio management.

              Finding my home with UBS and my team ARC Partners has allowed my passion and pride in building close relationships with clients to flourish. I see my role as a trusted guide and educator. I want my clients to comprehend financial concepts, evaluate investment options and assess risks. This leads to a sense of empowerment and safety in today’s often confusing markets.

              I bring my coaching and mentoring skills to my second passion, growing the sport of lacrosse in California. After moving from Maryland, I started coaching all age levels ranging from 6 and under to college.  I currently run the Red Hawks Youth Program In Los Gatos and Saratoga, I am the Head of the lacrosse Program at Bellarmine College Prep, and assistant coach of the Santa Clara University men’s team.


              Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Allison, and our English Bulldog, Graham. Some of our hobbies include skiing, playing tennis or golf, and training for triathlons such as the Ironman and Escape from Alcatraz.
