Prior to founding Sherwood Wealth Management, I advised clients at a multi-billion-dollar wealth management firm in the San Francisco Bay Area and a boutique wealth management firm in Boulder, Colorado. Before pursuing my passion for personal finance, I served as an officer in the United States Air Force.
Today, I live outside of Aspen, Colorado with my wife and our three children. When I’m not working with clients, you can usually find me hiking or skiing through the forests that surround our picturesque Roaring Fork Valley.
