Racing is one of my favorite hobbies.  As with anything new, I started at the beginning. I quickly learned it wasn’t just about driving around in circles as fast as I could. There was a strategy, a preferred line I had to follow around the track if I wished to optimize my time while maintaining safety.

I also found that no matter how well things seem to be going during the race, there is a need for a periodic pitstop, to check my tires, and ensure my car is running at optimal levels.

While driving, there are decisions that must be made that are dependent on moment to moment circumstances. Depending on the track, and the other cars around, I found I may need to adjust my line, accelerate, or possibly even pull back.

Someone had to teach me and guide me on these principals of racing. I had to rely on the expert instructors, and by doing so, I have made my racing experience exceptional.

I invite you to think of your journey to financial freedom as driving your dream car around the track and think of me as your instructor.

I’ll be there to guide you along the way to achieve all your financial goals. Our meetings will be your pitstops, and my team is your very own pit crew. Look to me to explain your dashboard, where you are and how you are operating. It’s not just about getting to the finish line but enjoying the journey while learning along the way.

My objective whether I’m racing or advising a client, isn’t to cut corners or finish first, but to understand what risks we can take and what precautions to put in place to ensure you confidently reach the finish line, having enjoyed the ride.


Making great decisions about your wealth, whether you are deciding to grow it, protect it or both, starts with sound thinking; thinking that makes sense.
