I know what it means to move to a new country and be a cultural stranger despite what would have been considered some great academic credentials in the tech space.I know the challenges of the multi-year immigrant journey and the frustration of not knowing where or who to turn to for answers on personal finance on areas like taxes, investments, company-provided benefits, insurance etc.This is what got me started on the personal finance journey. Today I am the founder of Elgon Financial Advisors, a Fee-Only independent wealth management firm registered in Texas.I help my clients make smarter decisions about money. I love seeing the look on their faces when they realize they do not have to walk alone on this journey.Prior to becoming a financial advisor, I spent over 17 years working in the high-tech field. I hold a master’s degree in Information Technology in addition to passing the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) exam and the Uniform Investment Adviser Law (Series 65) exams.I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring Austin and trying to hold my own on the tennis court against my teenage girls. In addition, I’m working on improving my running with the goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon soon.
