Planning Specialties

Ryan began investing at the age of 18 while earning his degree in business and management of technology at Clarkson University. Through his studies and over 15 years of investment experience, Ryan became a firm believer in asset diversification, risk minimization, tax-efficient investing and low-cost portfolio management. His financial know-how eventually led him to be a resource for friends and family, and he quickly discovered his passion for helping others with financial planning and investing. 

Today, Ryan is a managing partner at Citrine Capital, where he serves as a Investment Advisor Representative (IAR), California Life, Health and Disability Insurance Agent and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®).

Previously, Ryan worked as a securities broker, financial planner and investment advisor representative at Ameritas Investment Corporation where he also earned his Series 6, 63 and 65 licenses. In 2014, he left Ameritas to found Cole Wealth Advisors, which evolved into Citrine Capital.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Ryan has the pragmatism and objectivity of an East Coaster balanced by an easygoing, holistic attitude adopted from nine years in San Francisco. Outside of work, he enjoys traveling and exploring new places with his wife and two daughters, ice hockey, cycling, great food and great coffee.
