What do you like about working at Bridge?
The drive for excellence. It is very rewarding to be part of a team that always wants to be better – better advisors, better team members, better people.
What’s your background?
I am a native Californian. My parents were hippies that moved to the Bay Area in the early 70’s. My mom was getting away from a blue blood childhood in Baltimore, Maryland and my dad was a budding young musician from St. Louis, Missouri seeking like-minded people. Luckily they met, got married and had me and my older sister. I was born in the Bay Area, grew up in Los Angeles and have lived all over the State and will never leave (never say never, right…?). I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 3 kids – James, Claire & Olivia. In my past life, pre-young kids, I loved to travel, race sail boats, ride bikes competitively and even surf when I lived by the beach. I now get my kicks running and spending time with my family.
What are the Bridge Advisory Core Values that drive you?
