Hi! I'm Stanley Himeno-Okamoto, a fee-only financial planner based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I founded DRS Financial Partners to help technology startup employees in the Bay Area steer through the complexities of their equity compensation and ever-changing lives, committing to an objective approach and fiduciary standard.
Fascinated with the stock market since I was young, I began my career at a boutique wealth management firm in SF and quickly discovered how rewarding it is to help people gain clarity around their finances and make decisions with confidence. Whether it's preparing for a liquidity event or starting a family, seven years of helping tech executives and early employees with their complex situations helped me appreciate just how important it is to build a solid financial foundation. During my time there, I earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation and CFA® charter, sat on the investment committee, and led the firm's financial planning efforts.
Adopted from Okinawa as a baby, I grew up in Hawaii and fell in love with the Bay Area during a high school summer program. I graduated Cum Laude from Santa Clara University with a B.S. in Economics (Mathematical Economics concentration) and a Math minor. Outside of work you can find me on one of the Bay Area's many beautiful hiking trails, unwinding with some video games, or keeping up with an F1 race weekend.
