Judah had a remarkable ability to communicate from a very young age. His mother tells a story about him joining conversations with strangers at the park, they would pause and look around trying to figure out who was talking, only to realize it was a child speaking as clear as day! He also had a thirst for education which continued through college where he applied his communication skills to translate complex concepts (like finance) into simple yet functional steps for his colleagues to understand. Once Judah realized he could build a career around this same process, it was destiny.
Empowering others to focus on what brings them joy and prosperity is Judah’s primary goal. Finances are often a stressful topic that many people avoid, and he understands the trust it takes for clients to share personal details about their lives. To help create enjoyable conversations that are also productive, he brings a refreshing sense of levity and humor whenever possible.
Judah believes that every dollar should have a purpose and does not use a “cookie cutter” approach to financial planning. As a client, you will feel his team’s passion for their work and a dedication to act in their clients’ best interest.
Many of Judah’s professional relationships start during transition periods, such as:
- Job changes
- Family planning
- Real estate transactions
- Income planning for retirement
- Tax consequences of a business sale/purchase
- Inheritance and estate planning
Judah graduated from Western Washington University with degrees in finance, economics, and international business. Since he began his career in 2012, Judah has proudly earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional designation and been nationally recognized for his leadership and client impact.
Judah is a Seattle native, currently residing in the Queen Anne neighborhood with his wife, Katie, and their Golden Retriever, Hendrix. He is tirelessly energetic and enjoys running, cooking, and playing tennis. In the winter months, they escape to California and split their time between La Quinta and Santa Barbara.
