I am passionate about helping individuals, families, and business owners achieve peace of mind by developing and implementing creative cost effective estate plans tailored for each client.
I am an attorney focused on Estate Planning, Probate, and Trust Administration, practicing in Manhattan Beach, California. I have been licensed to practice law in California for 32 years.
I was the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for Sony Pictures Entertainment. Prior to Sony, I was a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) advising global clients in the entertainment industry for over 18 years.
I earned a bachelor of science degree in Physics from St. Mary’s College, California; a masters of business administration (MBA) from University of California at Los Angeles, and a JD from Loyola Law School. In 1985, I became a Certified Public Accountant (Illinois) and have been a member of the California State Bar since 1984.
I proudly served as a Naval Aviator flying the A-6 Intruder deployed aboard USS Midway during the Vietnam conflict. To this day, I am an avid private pilot and over the past 20 years, I have enjoyed flying my family all over the United States in my airplane.
