My Professional Resume

Being the next generation in my family of Financial Advisors, I love what I do. I have always felt that if you do right by others, success will follow. I live by the following core values:

  • Always be kind
  • Treat people with respect
  • Be attentive to the needs of others
  • Show people I genuinely care by always putting their interests first

Years ago, a hockey game between the Boston Bruins and Edmonton Oilers had been paused for some technical issues with the stadium lights. To kill some time, the announcers started interviewing people including the Edmonton Oilers, Wayne Gretzky, undoubtedly the world’s greatest hockey player at the time. The announcer stated that Gretzky was not the biggest guy in the league, or the strongest, or the fastest or the toughest, yet he was regarded as the greatest hockey player in the world.  So, how then did Gretzky explain his own genius?  Gretzky simply replied: “I don’t go where the puck is; I go where the puck is going to be!”

In a simple one liner, Gretzky confirmed that his success did not come from chasing the puck. Instead, it came from staying one step ahead and by anticipating where the puck would likely go next. This is an important aspect of my practice as a Financial Advisor, to look at the future potential of an investment for my clients -- instead of focusing on past performance. I take a proactive approach to anticipate the needs of my clients -- based on goals, aspirations, and priorities.

As a professional, it is crucial I invest my time in getting to know you, understanding what's most important to, and what it is that you are working toward and why; before I invest your money. It is equally important for me to understand your comfort in taking risk when investing so that we can balance it with taking the necessary steps to reach your long-term goals.
