Spend with confidence and live your best life in retirement.

You’ve worked hard your entire life, ​but you still wonder...

  • Am I gonna be OK when I retire?
  • When should I start taking Social Security?
  • Is my portfolio too risky?
  • How can I pay less taxes?
  • Can I afford that big trip I’ve been dreaming about?


When planning for retirement, ​there’s a lot to consider.

Most people over 50 are afraid of running out of money in retirement. ​I created a process that takes the guesswork out of retirement planning, so they can spend with confidence knowing they’ll be OK.

Never run out of money
Spend with ease and joy
Make the most of retirement

We take the guesswork out of retirement planning so you can feel secure and excited about your future.

Retirement isn’t just about the money. ​ It’s about your quality of life.


I ensure you have a reliable income.

So you’re not just hoping the stock market goes up and up.

I am product neutral.

That means zero sales agenda, just a solutions-driven process that really works.

I focus only on retirement planning.

I’d rather be the best at one thing than average at many things.

I am a teacher at heart.

I make sure you understand what you own, why you own it and how it will benefit you.

I am a fiduciary.

It’s my legal responsibility to put your best interest above all else. I don’t take it lightly.

​I operate with total transparency.

All fees are spelled out clearly before we do business.
