Additional Information

Throughout my 25 year career I have served as a financial problem solver for both individuals and businesses.  I began career with Arthur Andersen and spent five years in public accounting as a CPA.  I subsequently attended the Booth Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago where I studied Nobel Prize winning investment strategies developed by the school's professors and used today by renowned mutual fund company, Dimensional Fund Advisors.  After my graduate studies I worked with small and mid-sized privately owned businesses that I advised on various financial issues, including exit strategies and business acquisitions.  

Outside of my professional career, I became a resource for friends and family seeking tax and other personal financial advice.  Along with being a CPA and Certified Financial Planner (CFP®), I passed the first two of the three exams of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) curriculum.  In 2014 I chose to focus his career full-time on personal financial planning and wealth management.

In my spare time I enjoy playing golf, attending Chicago’s many local theater productions and attending to the demands of my 9 year old yellow lab, Charlie.
