Learn More About Doug | (415) 507-1897



Born in Buffalo, N.Y., when I was 9 yrs. old, my family moved to Lesotho, Africa, where my father accepted a professorship, with the Andrew Carnegie Corporation, to teach “Systems of Education” to African teachers. Through this wonderful experience, I developed a deep appreciation for other cultures and a love of travel to foreign lands.

California has been my home for 37 years, and my wife and I reside in San Rafael. My Financial Services Career began in 1999, helping teachers with their retirement plans.

The years have sped by and I have worked with over 1800 clients from all walks of life. No one has ever lost a penny in any account that I have setup for them. My passion is working with clients to help them realize their retirement goals. Together, we will customize a strategic plan where your financial future is maximized, safe and secure.
