Trevor wrote the book “TECH SUCCESS” to answer the question “How do Technology Executives and their Families Manage Meaningful Wealth?” Written in a light conversational tone, it makes sense of weighty subjects including investing, estate planning, charitable giving, and tax mitigation. You don’t have to be a tech exec to appreciate the guidance this book has to offer.

When not in the office, Trevor enjoys the challenge of endurance events, such as the 100-mile Western States trail run over the Sierras from Squaw Valley to Auburn, California. Just like wealth management, endurance running requires years of incremental growth, built on a solid foundation of experience, while keeping a watchful eye open for life-changing pitfalls.
