I built my foundation in the Pool Industry as a leak detection and repair contractor. Providing sound, grounded, financial services to the people I know and understand doesn’t just excite me, it feels like my way of giving back and adding value to the industry that has given me so much. Many pool contractors are self-made success stories, but they spend so much time growing and working on their businesses that learning how to invest carefully and intentionally doesn’t seem possible. Working for yourself obviously has many advantages but it also means we don’t have an HR department encouraging us to invest in the company matched 401k, a government pension, or any other long-term savings plan. I was fortunate to have been taught that we are on our own early in my career and now my goal is to help others plan for their future and expand on what they have already achieved.

My wife Morgan and I manage our money using Dave Ramsey’s principles, or as he calls it, “grandma’s way of handling money.” We have made a point of living debt free since 2014 and recently finalized that by paying off our home mortgage entirely. I have worked hard enough to know the true value of money and am a firm believer that there are no real ‘get rich quick’ schemes in life. These principles form the basis for my investing philosophy. I have an open door (or phone, email) policy for anything financial with my clients, I really find joy in helping and teaching others the principles that I have come to learn.
