I began my business career working in corporate finance for large national corporations. During those early years, I was introduced to the many financial issues faced by individuals, small businesses, and corporations. With a desire to help people proactively address these personal financial issues, I transitioned into the retail financial services industry. I first worked as a financial advisor with Merrill Lynch for eleven years, seeing both the best and the worst of Wall Street. In 2009, I came to the realization that I could offer more objectivity to my clients if I joined an independent broker/dealer. I then signed on with LPL Financial, and founded my own firm.
Now, as an independent LPL Financial Advisor with more than 20 years of experience in the industry, I specialize in retirement planning strategies, estate planning, and investment management for individuals, small businesses, and families. I am committed to upholding the high ethical standards of the Financial Planning Association, FINRA, and LPL Financial, LLC. My principle office is located near the Social Security Service Center in northeast Wichita, Kansas at 3122 N. Cypress.
My parents arrived in Kansas in 1962 as immigrants from Cuba. My father was a practicing physician in Winfield for many years. I was born and raised in Winfield, Kansas and as a result of my heritage, was raised to speak fluent Spanish. I graduated from Winfield High School in 1983 and then went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in Business from the University of Kansas and a Master of Business Administration from Wichita State University. My wife Amy and I make our home in Wichita, Kansas and are proud parents of Elizabeth and Alex, who are both attending Kansas State University. We are also members of Chapel Hill Methodist Church. As a family, we enjoy traveling and being in the great outdoors and cherish spending time with friends and family. If it’s not raining too hard, I can be persuaded to play a round of golf.
