I started in the financial services industry in June of 1986 after graduating from the University of New Mexico with a Finance degree. I started working with John Hancock Financial Services and moved to Northwestern Mutual Financial Network in November of 1991. I focused on helping people to protect their ability to earn an income with life insurance, disability insurance and health insurance as well as accumulating wealth for retirement and education planning. In May of 2013 I opened Gateway Financial Advisors in Albuquerque. As an independent financial advisor I am able to give unbiased recommendations and impartial guidance based on every client’s individual and unique needs and goals. I really enjoy helping people to feel confident in their financial future by developing a plan where we insure against what can go wrong so we can enjoy the luxury of investing for what can go right!
I have always been a musician and met my wife, Jenny, in band in 1982. We were married in 1996 and have three sons. Our family is very athletic. Jenny plays volleyball, our oldest son is in the Olympic Development Program for beach volleyball, the middle one is a soccer player and the youngest loves baseball. I am an avid cyclist riding thousands of miles each year up and down the mountains that surround Albuquerque.
