As a kid, I had a solid answer when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said “retired”.

I was bitten by the retirement bug at a very early age. You see, my grandparents were part of the post-war migration of retirees to Sarasota, Florida around 1970. From my childhood home in Orlando, to me their retirement community was more magical than any local theme park. This was the Greatest Generation, yet they humbly welcomed me to holiday cookouts, pancake breakfasts and my favorite – shuffleboard tournaments. I embraced their sense of patriotism, citizenship and service, and when I grew up I wanted to be like them.

Back in those days, retirement planning was simple. Most had pensions, and few lived past 75. In contrast, today’s retirees confront an array of complex decisions, sometimes with little clear guidance. The best part of my job is helping clients cut through the noise to find comfort, freedom and liberation that the financial planning process can provide – so they can get back to grandkids, travel, volunteering and shuffleboard – well, today it’s pickleball.

I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.

  • If I couldn’t be a financial planner, I’d be: a National Parks ranger
  • Favorite bedtime: before 9:30pm
