Helping Tech Professionals and Business Owners Build Brighter Futures

I’m passionate about empowering individuals to achieve financial freedom and live their dream lives. As a Wealth Advisor at Forefront Wealth Partners, I work closely with technology professionals and business owners, guiding them through the process of defining their financial goals and crafting personalized plans to achieve them.

My diverse background combines financial expertise with a strong understanding of personal and professional aspirations. While my Spanish degree from the University of Washington sparked an early love of exploration, I’ve found my true calling in helping others navigate the financial landscape.

Since joining Forefront Wealth Partners in 2019, I’ve thrived in a collaborative environment led by an exceptional team. Witnessing the positive impact we have on clients’ lives fuels my dedication to this field.

Beyond my professional pursuits, I embrace life with enthusiasm. I am happily married to my wife, who hails from Mexico, and our shared passion for travel has led us to explore diverse cultures and cuisines. I strive for continuous learning and personal growth, always seeking to be a better version of myself.

I’d be honored to partner with you on your journey towards financial independence.
