Professional Background

Brad entered the finance industry straight from UCSB and has become recognized as one of America’s “Top Wealth Managers.” He founded Mission Wealth in an effort to provide advice and an experience that clients deserved: a high standard of quality that he would expect himself as a client. While the firm has grown over the years, he is proud to this day that the business has not lost its original priority of putting the needs of clients first. (Mission Wealth has been a fiduciary since the founding of the firm in March 2000.) Brad believes the firm owes its success to the client relationships that have been built together over the decades and the excellent and talented people that have joined Mission Wealth's quest for excellence.

Brad has a Bachelor of Arts in Business Economics from University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), as well as a Master of Science in Financial Planning from the College for Financial Planning. Brad was an adjunct professor of finance from 2008-2012 for the MVS School of Business and Economics at CSU Channel Islands.
