Executive Director

Financial Advisor

California Insurance License O133340

I began my advisory career in 1986 when I joined E.F.Hutton and Company, which later became Smith Barney. My formative years as a financial advisor were spent in some of the markets most tumultuous times, as the market corrections of 1987, 1990, and 1994 impressed upon me the importance of capital preservation. I joined UBS in 2008, attracted by the firm's reputation in Wealth Management, and financial stability. My years as a branch manager have given me unique insight into the needs of sophisticated investors, and the value of being a fully engaged financial advisor.

My focus is on how meaningful conversations about your personal and financial goals, when combined with a rigorous planning process, can improve financial outcomes for you and your family. My experience, combined with the powerful resources of my firm, enables us to become valuable and experienced financial advisors to you, your family, and future generations.
