I co-founded Paracle to bring quality financial planning and investment advice together as one service. I began my career as a CPA with Deloitte and Touche. In my time there I developed a strong understanding of financial statements and realized I wanted to bring that understanding to individuals. In going to work for a wealth management firm during the dot.com era and subsequent meltdown, I learned the importance of financial planning and the value of always having a long term plan in mind when making investment decisions.

In 2004, the wealth management landscape was focused on serving the investment needs of ultra high net worth families and there was a gap between what those with moderate wealth were receiving and what those with massive wealth were receiving. The idea of Paracle was born to better serve those with more moderate wealth by bringing a service focused on putting financial planning first, and allowing that planning to drive investment decisions. Partnering with EJ Brink and Anne Marie Kessler, who had a similar vision, Paracle was started in February, 2004.

Outside of work, I live in the Snoqualmie Ridge neighborhood with my wife, Jamie, and two boys, Nate and Max. We spend about 8 months of the year in ice hockey rinks all over the northwest with the boys playing and me coaching. The other 4 months are spent on the golf course, riding mountain bikes, and more recently wake boarding (I leave the big air to the kids these days). While playing with the kids is tons of fun, my favorite activity is enjoying a glass of wine with Jamie at the end of a great day.
