Michael loves baseball. A lifelong Texas Rangers fan, he is used to big wins — and big losses. What he’s come to understand about baseball is that, much like investing, it’s all about being in the right position to succeed. Perhaps that’s why Michael is so passionate about his clients’ successes.

In 2014 he was recruited away from a position in banking to join the UFCU wealth management team, available through CFS,* where his tremendous tenacity has been a welcome addition. He prides himself on his results-oriented approach and pragmatic style of helping clients make smart choices with their assets. When asked why he made the switch to this line of work, he replied “because no two days are the same, and the decisions I help people make are the kind that actually make a difference in people’s lives.”

Michael is an Austin transplant by way of McAllen, TX, but has called our town home for nearly seven years. He is married and has a very precocious daughter that keeps him busy. When he’s not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family, watching the Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys, and diving deep into his fantasy sports teams.
