His interest in the pharmaceutical industry stemmed from his desire to help people, and this passion drives him as he aims to improve his clients’ “financial health.”
Michael’s meticulous approach to understanding people’s needs and goals is often what his clients appreciate most about working with him. He regularly leads workshops on specific financial issues, ranging from pre-marital couples learning to blend personal finances to graduating medical professionals preparing for substantial increases in compensation. Michael works with many Los Angeles County and City employees, business owners and families with young children.
Michael’s professional experience in accounting and finance includes working for the tax department of 20th Century Fox and the hedge fund services division of JP Morgan. He currently holds FINRA Series 6 and 63 registrations with LPL Financial, the Series 65 registration with Trilogy Capital, Inc., and also holds a California Life and Long-Term Care Insurance License. He also passed the Registered Tax Return Preparer exam in 2012.
