Financial Advisor Experience

Prior to starting Unrivaled Wealth Management, I spent six years advising high net worth clients at several RIAs in Ohio. I found my niche in equity compensation and business liquidity planning when I moved to Miami, FL to build and manage the financial planning department for a multi-billion-dollar RIA. I had the chance to work closely with ultra-high net worth business owners and corporate executives and saw how big of a need there is to capitalize on these once in a lifetime opportunities. My passion is providing real financial planning to help people achieve what's truly important to them. In the process, I want to help break the stigma that expensive investment products, hundred-page binders, and mahogany desks are what represent the industry. I want to be thought of as someone who really helps change client's lives through financial advice.
