My Story

I have been in this business for a long time. With 30+ years of working side by side with clients during good markets and bad, this experience has allowed me to keep perspective during difficult times, and to assist others by keeping focus on what matters. "With Grey Hair Comes Grey Matter" is one saying; I like to look at it that being around for a bit gives one familiarity with the complications of life. Plans are just that and need to be flexed and modified based on what life throws at you.

Now in my later 50's, I realize that it is not just having the tools in a toolbox, but knowing how and when to use them, that matters. What is important to you? Where do you want to go? What fears do you have and what do you want to pass along to your loved ones? How do you want to make a difference? Questions like these are important ones. I would love to have a conversation with you about what matters and how we may be able to help you get where you want to go.

What do I do for fun? Well, it seems that collecting stuff has pretty much always been a part of my blood. I started with numismatics in my teens and have also enjoyed building a small wine cellar and bourbon bunker. Basically, I am fascinated by history and the stories that objects can spark. What something represents and what time period it is from tells tales that connect us. In addition to the stories, I also enjoy helping people understand the different ways that their "stuff" can be passed along to others. This may take the form of gifts to family or finding the best way to liquidate a collection. Things don't have to have significant monetary value to be important!
