I live in Washington, D.C. with my wife and two adorable little girls (but I'm biased). When I'm not trying to keep up with the kids, I devote time to other passions: CrossFit, creating artwork inspired by video games, playing video games (to research new painting ideas!), and reading/watching bad sci-fi (well, there's almost no such thing as bad sci-fi).
My academic background includes a Master of Business Administration from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from The University of Maryland at College Park in College Park, MD. I also hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation, which requires hundreds of hours of study and completion of a rigorous exam. In addition, I'm a member of The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), The XY Planning Network and the Financial Planning Association.
