I am dedicated to working with individuals, families and business owners to help accumulate, preserve, and transfer their wealth. My approach to managing wealth that begins with listening to a client’s needs and helping to ensure that the financial advice dispensed is grounded in understanding the goals that each client is looking to achieve. I enjoy providing a high standard of service in addition to emphasizing client education. I offer the investment insights of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and the banking convenience of Bank of America to further address the various aspects of clients’ financial lives.
I grew up in the Glassell Park / Eagle Rock neighborhoods of Los Angeles and obtained undergraduate degrees in Electrical Engineering and in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, and my graduate/MBA degree (Master's in Business Administration) at the UCLA Anderson School of Management. I reside with my family in Pasadena and give back to the local community. In my spare time, I enjoy juggling, hiking, reading, volunteering with various non-profit organizations, astronomy, and traveling (Hong Kong/China, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Italy, South Africa, France, and London/UK thus far). I am left handed and enjoy creative projects. One of my most interesting and fun local endeavors included acting in the PhD Comics movie filmed at Caltech.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of active involvement in the communities we that serve. I currently sit on the Economic and Business Development, and Member Services Committees for the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce; am a member Los Angeles Astronomical Society, and the Planetary Society; I previously served as Vice Chair of Development with the UCLA Fund Chancellor's Society. Some of my various involvement at UC Berkeley include Life Member of the California Alumni Association, Dean's Society, Charter Hill Society, and Engineering Alumni Society; at UCLA I am a member of Chancellor's Associates, Dean's Society, True Blue & Gold Society, Rose Bowl Bruins, and am a Life Member of the Alumni Association.
I am of Toisan-Chinese descent; my secondary languages that I speak include Toisanese-Chinese and Cantonese-Chinese.
I am currently certified as a "Better Money Habits Champion" with Bank of America to deliver financial education presentations to underserved neighborhoods and communities.
