What do you enjoy most about wealth management?
The opportunity to help clients protect and grow their wealth and not having to "sell our soul" to reach Wall Street profit targets.
What’s the biggest challenge?
As long-term, opportunistic investors, the single biggest challenge we face is maintaining discipline, confidence, and patience during extended bear or bull markets. And, any years like 2000 and 2008.
What do you love most about being part of Next Generation Wealth Management?
I love making a difference for the two communities we serve: our clients and our associates. Our independence and freedom for us to "do the right thing" every day is awesome.
What qualities of yours makes you best suited to what you do?
I am passionate, have a strong work ethic, an unwavering commitment to build a client centric culture, and integrity. People know that I care and trust me.
How should people think about their wealth?
It’s there for them to enjoy, to create opportunities, to be generous with, but not to be a burden.
What would you be doing if you weren’t working for Next Generation Wealth Management?
I’m one of the founding partners, so it is difficult to imagine not working at the firm.
What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?
I have been blessed to be married to my wife for more than two decades. I’m proud of the steps that have been achieved guiding our two children as they discover their purpose in life.
What do you love to do outside of work?
I spend a lot of time sitting at either a desk or around conference tables, so I just like to hang out with my family and friends, coach tennis, and travel to new places.
