I’ve always been interested in financial markets and investing icons like Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, but I spent most of my career in technology sales.
I enjoyed helping my clients solve tough problems in the technology industry. But, as my family grew and I was progressing in my sales career I felt that it was time for a change.
When my dad, who built Walhout Financial from scratch, was ready to retire, he approached me about taking over his business. My desire to build a business where I could have a meaningful impact on people's lives made the opportunity irresistible.
The families I work with value straightforward solutions. They are looking for guidance so they can live out their retirement dreams with peace of mind and confidence. I look forward to working with you.
What I Do for Fun
Having fun at the Blue Jays game.
My spare time is dedicated to my family. My wife Sarah and I have 2 kids - Luke and Zoey. We love to travel and do a lot of family activities together, whether we’re going on a big adventure to Europe, enjoying a day at Canada’s Wonderland, or spending the day at the local splash pad. We are also big fans of Toronto sports teams - the Jays and the Leafs in particular.
I do volunteer work supporting my kids’ activities, like coaching hockey and baseball for my son or supporting family activities at my kids’ schools.
I am an FPSC Level 1® Certificant in Financial Planning. I hold an Honours Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, ON.
I am currently pursuing the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® (or CFP®) designation, expected completion in 2019.
