I joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2013 upon returning home to Houston after six and a half years of studying, and working abroad in Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. I am passionate about building and sustaining client relationships, and effectively guiding clients towards identifying and achieving their ultimate goals and dreams. Reinforced by my background in hospitality, my approach to wealth management encompasses the principals of value creation and service excellence. I am also licensed to sell insurance in Colorado, Texas, California, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, and New York.
I hold both a Master's of Science from Rotterdam School of Management and a Bachelor's of Science from Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne in Hospitality Management. I regularly complete internal learning courses at Merrill to stay knowledgeable and up-to-date with industry standards and trends. I am fluent in Spanish and French, and have working knowledge of Dutch.
My wife Brechtje and I love to travel and particularly enjoy hiking and skiing together. We live in Basalt, Colorado with our daughter Rafaella and our dogs Baltazar and Penelope.
