I respect our leadership, management and my colleagues, and we are always striving to be better. I love my career because of the clients. My clients are all genuinely good people with a sense of balance and perspective about their lives—including their hard work and their luck! Also, I love the intellectual stimulation I get from interacting with my clients, their wealth advisors and other investment managers, especially the international equity managers.

I still occasionally surf—on a very long, big board—usually on the East Cape of southern Baja.
