Q & A

  • What drew you to the Bay Area?

    The good ol’ “American Deam”. Compared to where I came from (Taiwan), it was much easier obtain a quality education here and the U.S. has provided a better environment for my family.
  • Discuss a solution you provided for a client that you’re extremely proud of.

    Provided one client an alternative strategy to hold their concentrated stock position. While maintaining the position and strategizing to sell over time, earning income on top of that created an additional income stream for the client. Assisting the client transition into retirement by planning out their income streams as well as setting up their estate plan.
  • If you volunteer for a charity, which one(s) and why?
