Why did you join Dowling & Yahnke?

I joined Dowling & Yahnke because of our long track record of putting the client’s interest first. The financial industry has long been fraught with conflicts of interest between clients and advisors. Dowling & Yahnke’s growth and track record speaks volumes about the value of doing well by your clients.

What quality of yours makes you best suited for what you do?

I enjoy combining my passion for studying the capital markets with the opportunity to implement that knowledge to help our clients.

Which hobby are you most passionate about?

I am a competitive runner for the Prado Racing Team based in San Diego, CA. Running is the perfect sport because it allows you to continually test the limits of human performance.

What is your personal motto or mantra?

My personal motto is “Tune out the world and focus.” This was a piece of advice my father passed down to me.

What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?

I was the starting All-State Point Guard for the State Championship winning Hope Christian Huskies of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
