Deano, my chocolate lab. To this day, I still cannot fathom how this 90lb dog jumped up on the table.

Where's your favorite place in the world?

Thus far, my favorite place to be would have to be skiing down a mountain somewhere out West.

What are you currently watching on Netflix?

I really enjoy movies and TV shows, I am currently watching Yellowstone.

What's the coolest thing you're working on right now?

A favorite past time of mine is anything where I can work with my hands. The coolest thing I’m working on is slowly dismantling and renovating my house. It was built in the 60s so it is a broad scope of work where I recently finished up the kitchen, dining and living room areas. The next house project I look forward to is renovating the bathrooms.

If you could visit anywhere in the world you've never been, where would you go?

I have only recently begun traveling outside of the states so my answer here will change as I knock destinations off my list. At this point, I would really like to see South America. I strive to create an authentic experience when leaving the country and would love to go to Brazil and enjoy a dinner at an authentic Brazilian steakhouse.

What will I learn on this call?

It’s hard for anyone to look at a website and say “yes, this is for me, please help me with my money”.  Finances are deeply personal, and talking to someone who can listen and determine what will help you the most is just one simple and confidential call away.  In 15 minutes or less you will have a better understanding of what’s available to you and if you are a good fit for Facet. 

If it’s clear we can help, and you want to learn more about working with Facet, then we will share what the service will cost based on the complexity of your finances.
