What inspired you to choose wealth management as a career?
Growing up I always enjoyed the intellectual stimulation within the financial markets, at the same time I knew that there was also a strong desire to work with people. Wealth Management fulfills both of these passions through the day-to-day operations of working within the financial markets, while being able to educate and help people reach their unique goals in life.
Why did you choose to be part of the BDF team?
My biggest draw to BDF was the strong culture of values as well as the firm being structured in a way that is conflict free. The combination of these factors allows us to do what is in the best interest of the client, something that can be difficult to find in the financial services industry.
What is the one thing you wish every person knew when making financial decisions?
That the average investor tends to underperform the market, not because of lack of intelligence or competency, but because of the emotional factor that tends to overtake reason. That’s why here at BDF we make sure to find a risk tolerance that matches your long term goals and allows you to sleep easy within all market cycles.
What’s the most influential book you’ve read and why?
The most influential book has to be the novel I am currently reading, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Her literature describes the philosophy of Objectivism, which explains the moral purpose of one’s life, is the pursuit of one’s own passions and happiness.
Who are your role models?
My Father and both of my Grandfathers have been tremendous role models to me as they founded and ran their own businesses. The success from humble beginnings has taught me determination and persistence is crucial to any accomplishments. Being raised in a family of entrepreneurs I have always had a special appreciation for those willing to put it all on the line for something they believe in.
