I just started officially working for Dechtman Wealth Management but I have been familiar with the company all my life.
I have enjoyed getting to know our clients and learning more about them. The ability to make a positive impact on the lives of others is what excites me most and drives me to get better every day.
I enjoy hiking in the mountains and spending time with family. We normally hike around the Beaver Creek/Vail area, but I also like going around Boulder as well. Being outside in nature is therapeutic.
My hobbies are playing basketball and golf, hiking in the mountains, and reading. I also like going to Rockies and Broncos games whenever I can.
I wanted to be a professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets. Chauncey Billups was my hero growing up after I met him at a basketball camp.
If you fail to prepare, prepare to fail. You must put effort and care into everything you do.
Shawskank Redemption, Anchorman, and the Lion King.
While I have a long list of items on my bucket list, playing golf at Augusta National and eating sushi in Japan are at the top of my list.
Passing the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM exam was a very special day for me.
I would play golf every day and try to join the PGA tour.
Going on a safari in Africa is something I’ve always wanted to do since I was little. Seeing Lions, Giraffes, Cheetahs, Elephants and other wild animals in their natural habits would be a fun adventure.
If you were given the opportunity to meet your favorite Actor, Singer or other famous person, who would it be?
Warren Buffett is someone I would love to meet. He has an incredible wealth of knowledge and seems like a nice person to be around.
I would travel to Singapore, Thailand, and New Zealand with friends and family. That area of the world is hard to get to from Colorado so I would want to make the most of my time by visiting a few destinations.
I am definitely a dog person and have two little mutts, Linus and LeRoy, who I love very much. However, I do like baby kitten videos as much as the next person; YouTube seems to have an endless supply.
