Q & A

  • What drew you to the Bay Area?

    I moved from the Washington DC Metro area to the Bay area in 2015. We have family in Berkeley and have always loved visiting and sightseeing. My father was ill and taking care of him was the one thing keeping our family on the East Coast. After he passed away in 2015, we came to a pivotal part in our lives where we could stay in D.C. where I was a partner of a successful wealth management firm, or take the risk of uprooting our family and moving to a place we always dreamed living. In retrospect, our decision to move to the Bay area is one of the best decisions we ever made.
  • What are your favorite pursuits outside of work?

    Scuba diving, traveling, watching Premier League soccer, spending time with family, and anything that involves water and a beach.
  • Discuss a personal accomplishment that you’re particularly proud of.

    Becoming a dad. There is nothing more rewarding in this life than the incredible experience of being a parent.
