While he specializes in a range of financial disciplines, he dedicates his expertise to helping clients enhance the “return” on their life’s journey.

Having earned his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from California State University Fullerton, Michael also holds his Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from California State University Long Beach.
Actively involved in his community, Michael is an avid supporter of the National Endowment for Financial Education and The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. Outside of the office, he enjoys spending time with family, traveling, and golfing. He and his wife of 47 years live in Rancho Santa Margarita and have two grown children and four grandchildren. Michael is thrilled to partner with his son, Derek, an accomplished planner and partner with Aegis Financial Partners.
