I came to the U.S. at age 11 from the Dominican Republic. I was inspired by my parents to work hard and pursue an education. However, I was not taught about personal finance at home or in school, and had to learn a lot about financial independence the hard way. 


I became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional to help other First Gen wealth creators like myself pursue their goals, and because of that, I am an advocate for keeping financial planning simple. 


When I am not working on the On My Way to Wealth  blog or podcast, I stay busy as the owner of a financial planning and investment management firm, Build a Better Financial Future, and as co-founder of the DEI initiative to increase minority presence in the financial field called The BLX Internship, where I co-host the Diversity in Action™ Podcast.


I currently live in Southern California with my wife, Alison. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, walking on the beach, or eating at one of my favorite vegan restaurants in the Los Angeles area.
