What inspired you to work in the financial industry? 

The excitement of trading on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange.

Why did you join Dowling & Yahnke? 

I wanted to work with a small independent advisor in San Diego. At the time, Dowling & Yahnke had only five people, and you could sense their passion and desire to put their clients first. I wanted to be part of that.

What is your favorite spot in San Diego? 

Torrey Pines State Beach because I can surf, fish, and hike all in one place.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? 

Kamado Joe Grill. It’s perfect for grilling and smoking meats.

What is the best concert you ever attended? 

Red Hot Chili Peppers because I went with my son. To see his excitement and emotions was priceless.
