“What does money mean to you? I do not believe there is one "right" financial decision for every situation, which is why I believes the best way to manage financial affairs is to work through a process to articulate underlying values, beliefs, and desires as a foundation for financial decision-making.”

ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE: “My curiosity steers my interests in many directions. I play guitar and have recorded a LP and EP with a former band. I also enjoy running, cooking, photography, golf, gardening, reading, and spending as much time as possible with my wife and two boys.”
