Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m 21 years old and Wellington born and bred. I went to high school at St Pats Silverstream and I am an avid footballer.

What do you do for your clients?

It’s pretty simple I think. I help younger Kiwis make smarter decisions with their money to set them up properly for the future. That can be through getting insurance in place, reviewing KiwiSaver or putting together a financial plan.

I make sure my clients protect what they’ve already got and get them started with investing.

What brought you in to financial planning?

I figured this would be both an interesting and rewarding career to get into. I always like interacting with people and working as an adviser puts people at the centre of everything I do.

What’s your top financial tip?

Set up an automatic payment to a savings account right away – and don’t touch it for the little things. Getting used to saving starts to build a habit and that habit is what sets up your future.
