What Makes Me Different

I have been a financial advisor and licensed since April of 1984starting when the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 1,200, and have been through:

the crash of  '87

the recession of  '90

the Asian Currency Crisis in the mid '90's

the Russian Debt Default in the late '90's

the bailout of Long Term Capital Management

the dot-com boom

the dot-com bust


the Enron Bankruptcy

the Iraq War

the WorldCom bankruptcy

the Subprime crisis

the Bear Stearns collapse

Lehman Brothers

TARP and the $700B bailout

The Flash Crash

The Wall Street Reform Act

The European Debt Crisis

The "Fiscal Cliff"


The Dow Jones Industrial Average has been over 26,000 in that time. 

I've been through it all and have the benefit of that experience to guide you in your investing.

Furthermore, with more than 400 offices throughout 45 states and the District of Columbia, Stifel's philosophy on investing is grounded on a more than century-old tradition of trust, understanding, and solid, studied advice.  I believe Stifel has one of the leading bond trading desks and equity research departments on Wall Street.    So I believe the strategies I can provide are the best available to you.




Past performance does not guarantee future success and no one can predict the markets with any certainty. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is an index that shows how 30 large, publicly owned companies based in the United States have traded during a standard trading session in the stock market.
