    “So much of what I do extends beyond what many people think a financial advisor does.”

    People choose to work with Andy because he connects them with what they care about along with the resources to protect and help them flourish. Andy takes the time to learn about his clients’ families and businesses so he can best utilize his knowledge, resources and network to manage risks and leverage opportunities. This gives them the clarity and confidence to move forward to achieve their goals.

    Andy graduated with a degree in Finance from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX, where he also met his wife, Lourdes. Andy holds his Series 6, 63 and 65 Securities Licenses as well as Life, Health, Long-Term Care and Disability Insurance licenses. He continues to learn and attain industry accreditations to make his practice as comprehensive as possible.

    Andy and Lourdes chose Oak Park, IL to raise their family nearly 30 years ago. Since then, they have utilized Montessori, public and private education as well as four-year universities and trade schools to help their three children build on their talents and passions to launch them into adult life.

    Several years ago, Andy worked closely with his sister to get the best care for their aging parents so they could live their final years with dignity. He then helped her family navigate a fatal cancer diagnosis.

    These kinds of life experiences… and family and friends enlisting his financial advice along the way…drives Andy’s commitment to helping people achieve financial security after a twenty year career in the futures and options industry.

    Andy supports his community as Treasurer of the Oak Park River Forest Chamber of Commerce and volunteering with the Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio and Housing Forward. When his children were young, he served on their elementary school’s Parent Teacher Organization… the last two years as President. All of these activities yielded a multitude of great friends he still has to this day.

    Outside of family time, Andy spends as much time as he can seeing live local music, cooking and gardening… and if you ever want to talk about the Green Bay Packers, Andy is your guy!
