Financial Planner, Financial Advisor

Chris moved to San Diego, from Santa Barbara, to attend San Diego State University in 2010. After graduating with a degree in Economics, he spent 8 years in hospitality management and then decided to take his experience with restaurants and hotels and apply that knowledge to business.
