After 5 years, Mark left to work with a small ‘boutique’ wealth management firm and decided to study for and become an Investment Advisor Representative and fiduciary.

Upon returning to the US, he worked in the airline and hospitality industries before finding his calling in financial services. In the longer version of the story, he also earned a private pilot’s license along the way. 

Mark and his wife Tiffany have 3 kids. Their oldest son is about to graduate from UNLV with a Film degree, their daughter is in her freshman year at UNLV and intends to become a Physician’s Assistant, and their youngest son is 13 and a prolific gamer and club soccer player.
