How  I  arrived  at  RWM
“I’ve been in the advisory business for over 10 years. For years my partner, Brian and I had followed the Ritholtz gang on Twitter. It wasn’t long after we met them in Chicago that we launched RWM Midwest. It is refreshing to find people who see the world – and our roles as advisors – the same way. As is the case with RWM, Brian and I embrace data over narrative. We believe that simple beats complex, and we make planning and investment decisions based on evidence.”
Favorite  part  of  the  job
“I love helping clients make better financial decisions, and stay committed to their plans even when it seems really hard. I’m lucky to work with such interesting people, both clients and colleagues alike. A lot of them like to visit over coffee or beers, which certainly makes my job fun.
When  I’m  Not  Working
“I live in Chicago with my wife, Laura; our children, Sam and Violet; and the family dog, Mabel. I never, ever miss a Manchester United game, which is funny because my family finds it hard to believe that I ever was an athlete. (I played soccer in college and at Oxford.) I feel pretty fortunate that most of the time I get to see my family in the morning before school, and have dinner with them at night. You just can’t put a price on that.”
