Associate Wealth Management Advisor

My passion is to use my expertise to help educate people and provide them the tools and resources to plan their ideal future.

I joined Passehl Financial 13 years ago here in Philadelphia, the city I LOVE! I am excited every day that I get to work with amazing, high quality, high moral, energizing, smart people on our team and feel this way about the clients we help too!

On our team, I work closely with our clients to provide excellent planning and support. I strongly believe in continuing education to maximize the value we bring to our clients.

In my role, I will provide you with knowledge and expertise on market conditions, investments, and portfolio decisions. I can also help with investment related matters, provide information regarding accounts, statements, and online access. I enjoy working with our team to help our clients with additional planning related to education planning, retirement goals, and short to mid-term planning goals such as an upcoming wedding, vacation, or home purchase.

In my free time, I enjoy exploring Philadelphia with my wife always finding something new in the city to do, to eat, or to see... or just relaxing with a good book.

I hold a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (CFP®) certification and Chartered Life Underwriter, CLU® designation.

I was recently asked why I was drawn toward Passehl Financial and my response came easy and naturally, I was captivated by the team’s overarching desire to have the greatest positive impact on their client’s lives. Helping others has always been a core value of mine and seeing it embedded in this team, in the work Passehl Financial does as a core component of my career, resonated with me on a much deeper level.


In addition, the team’s focus on working together toward a common goal was inspiring. As a former basketball player at the University of Pennsylvania, I came to better appreciate the impact and the power of team. Passehl Financial has allowed me to move from one team to another, which I fully appreciate.


On a more personal note, I have a passion for working through complex problems and applying processes to just about everything I do. I also love spending my down time with family and friends, playing basketball and embracing the rich history and architecture throughout Philadelphia. As a native of Boston, and now a resident of this great city, I can appreciate the authenticity, passion and connection everyone has to this great city.
