Planning Specialties

After 10 years working for big Wall Street firms, I realized something that everyone suspects:  they are not working in your best interest.

I built Innovate Wealth to filter out the confusion and complexity that the industry likes to create.  I use values-based budgeting, a simple, rules-based portfolio management system, and operate as a fee-only fiduciary.  

I've worked with clients on:

  • Optimizing retirement income
  • Analyzing stock compensation
  • College planning
  • Budgeting and cash flow issues
  • Analyzing/optimizing insurance policies
  • Implementing a cheaper and simpler investment portfolio

I offer hourly, fixed fee, and percentage-based fees.  I believe everyone deserves quality advice, regardless of their net worth or location.  I use cutting edge technology and online collaboration to ensure we stay connected wherever you are.
