Like many other immigrants, I moved to this country as a young man with dreams of success and the belief that it will happen so long as you work hard for it. After stops in New York and Los Angeles, I settled in the Pacific Northwest where I now live with my wife Ina and my two children, Julio and Pia, in Bellevue. I have been in the financial industry for over twenty years now, starting off in customer service in banking and moving to retail sales and business banking as an underwriter, relationship officer and lender. At the same time, Ina and I set-up a business providing long-term care services to the elderly which we have been operating now for over 15 years. This combination of work experience and entrepreneurship has allowed me to transition into the insurance industry and eventually into my current role as a Registered Representative. I love being a resource to my clients that go beyond just investment advice but also providing additional insight into the realities of retirement. And just as I am excited in fulfilling my immigrant’s dreams of success, I am excited to work with you in fulfilling your own retirement dreams.
