My Mission

When working to formulate a sound financial strategy, I believe in taking a long-term view. My experience and hands-on approach, combined with the variety of products and services offered through AXA Advisors, LLCs and its affiliates, can help you plan for -- and build -- your financial future.

My primary focus as a financial professional is in estate planning strategies, where I work with successful individuals who are looking to preserve as much of their hard-earned assets as possible. My familiarity with current tax laws and my experience working with other professional advisors, such as attorneys and accountants, enables me to create plans to help my clients better manage their estate tax liabilities and preserve assets for their heirs.

My focus on executive benefits enables me to help you structure fiscally responsible compensation strategies that are designed to help you recruit and retain the talented and qualified executives you need to run your business.

My focus on executive benefits and estate planning strategies, two complementary disciplines, has enabled me to develop a thorough understanding of these specialized fields. My years of experience enable me to provide quality, professional service to business owners and other successful individuals.

My professional focus is helping companies set up and service qualified retirement plans for employees. My focus on retirement planning also enables me to help business owners and top executives develop their own personal retirement strategies. Whether it's choosing an IRA, a Roth IRA, a non-qualified annuity or other retirement savings vehicles, my experience can help create plans to address a wide-variety of retirement planning goals.

My education and experience help me communicate complex issues and analysis clearly. I'll skip the jargon. Because I want you to be comfortable with the program we develop, we'll work collaboratively throughout the entire process.
