Welcome! I want to thank you for stopping by and showing an interest in your financial future. Whether you're saving for retirement, wondering when to take Social Security, evaluating your estate plan, or just trying to understand how the latest legislation impacts your financial life, I am here to help.  

I hope you find the information on this site extremely useful. Please take the time to browse around and learn some financial concepts as well as more about me. While I have information here that pertains to most, I also realize that you are unique with a different set of needs and desires than anyone else, so a suitable plan can only be made after sitting down to truly understand what you need and want. My personalized service will focus on you, your needs, wants, and financial goals and objectives.

While I am located in Indianapolis, Indiana, I have clients throughout many parts of the U.S. Please contact me to set up a meeting to get started on your customized plan. We can always arrange a phone call or video conference meeting, as well!
