I have worked in the financial services field for over 10 years, and am passionate about the financial markets, wealth building, and the freedom that financial independence brings.
I focus primarily on portfolio-generated income, but possess a good grasp of modern portfolio theory. I am more interested in developing a goals-based portfolio than watching my net worth increase for the sake of watching numbers on a screen.
