A graduate of United States Naval Academy in 1987 with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, Russell holds Series 6, 63, and 65 securities licenses plus life and health insurance licenses in 23 states.

He advocates time-tested financial principles, including disciplined, long-term saving and investing, careful debt management, and a thoughtful insurance strategy to manage financial risk. Russell will work with you to establish specific, meaningful goals that are consistent with your values and then develop a personalized financial plan to guide your pursuit of those goals.
