My professional motto is: ‘your brand is the most valuable thing you own.’

I am: 31.

I’m a young professional financial advisor at Edward Jones.

I get involved in my community through the following organization(s): PICK, The Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce, School of Business at CBU, Riverside Alzheimer’s Walk, Riverside Meals on Wheels, and City of Riverside Purple Cities Alliance.

I am a happy resident in the City of: Riverside

My career goals are to: be a leader and partner in my firm as well as being one of the top advisors in the industry.

My professional motto is: “your brand is the most valuable thing you own.”

My advice to other YoPros is: compete for a seat at the table by being relevant and earning respect through hard work and genuine and ethical behavior. We can’t be positive change disrupters if no one is willing to hear us out.

When I’m not working or volunteering, you can find me: spending time with my beautiful wife and 2 daughters.

I joined PICK: so that I could network with other young professionals but also to be an advocate for the young professional and to seek development to further my professionalism.

PICK is awesome because: of the amazing members we have.

I maximize my PICK membership by: on the Board, attending Power Breakfast and other events, and by also being on the Membership Committee.

The issues in Riverside that I care about most are: our city’s economic development plans and the future economic ecosystem that we are striving to build for our future generations.
