When I was young, my grandfather would always say, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, but the second-best time is today.” The lessons he and my father taught me over the years instilled in me a mindset and a passion for educating others. The old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is true in financial preparation as well. My clients want a coach who can help them sort through the abundance of information available today while teaching them how to achieve their goals.

As a father, I think a lot about the future of my two sons and want our financial resources to be a positive influence. As a husband, I want the security of knowing that my wife will be financially secure if the unexpected ever happens to me. My clients feel the same way. That’s why I help families to save more, grow what they’ve saved, protect what they’ve grown, and efficiently transfer their wealth to the next generation. I want my clients to live the life they love.

Over the last several years, while building my practice, I have felt the struggles and the pride of creating something of value. I focus on helping business owners with financial strategies to get the most out of their business while helping to minimize their risk. When you decide to work with our practice, we start by understanding what is most important to you. Then our established process is used to build personalized strategies that fit your needs to help you achieve your financial goals. Lastly, we collaborate with you to help keep you on track. When I meet with clients, I want them to leave feeling understood, informed, in control, and secure, and to have confidence in their financial future, so they can focus on enjoying what is important to them today. Outside of this important work, you can find me playing music, reading a good book, coaching the South Portland High School Marching Band, or volunteering with the Maine Alzheimer’s Association. Most often, I’m with my family: at the playground, enjoying the Maine outdoors, playing hockey, and being the best father and husband I can be.

I am a firm believer in being intentional about tomorrow. Like any construction project, building your financial future requires intentional planning. It’s important that your financial advisor takes the time to listen and understand your story before helping you construct your plan. I’ll partner with you to create tailored solutions to accomplish your financial goals. As time moves forward and life happens, we’ll collaborate and evolve your plan to help keep you on track. Working together, we’ll plan for your tomorrow so you can live the life you love!

When I’m not working or spending time with friends and family, I enjoy traveling and have been fortunate to visit more than 10 countries. Staying committed to my fitness and nutrition goals helps me achieve the energy level I strive to bring to all aspects of my life – especially in motivating my clients to reach their goals.

Originally born in Azerbaijan, I moved to Portland with my family in 2009 and am proud to call Maine my home. After graduating from Deering High School, I received my bachelor’s in business administration with a concentration in risk management and a minor in economics from the University of Southern Maine.

My professional career began at a credit union where I became fascinated about how consistent investing over time positively impacted the lives of my clients as well as consequences of not planning. One of my clients once told me, “Make sure to save money as well as you spend it.” He never thought he’d run out of money at 77 years old and be forced to return to work out of retirement. It’s my mission to make sure that my family, friends, and clients never end up in that situation.

Since becoming an Edward Jones financial advisor, I fulfill that mission every day: Helping people plan for tomorrow so they can live the life they love! Thank you for visiting my page. I look forward to our conversation about how I can help you to be intentional about planning for your future.
