I am passionate about:
Finance & business strategy. I have a major side passion in entrepreneurship & digital design. Being able to help businesses and other people grow is what drives me.
A little known fact about me is:
I had a major stutter speech impediment growing up. It was a huge obstacle for me to overcome. I now routinely speak in front of large audiences and when I explain my speech struggles they seem shocked. This is one of my proudest accomplishments.

My parents main source of information is still very "old school". My Father reads magazines like Barrons & Kiplingers. They also stay up-to-date with the business sections of popular newspapers like Wall Street Journal and the Houston Chronicle (our local paper). I introduced him to Robo-advisors when they began talking about Tax-Loss Harvesting since at this point in their lives the main concern is preservation of capital and offsetting taxes. I noticed the new companies like Betterment and Wealthfront tout their tax loss harvesting capabilities quite a lot.
