Helping people attain their financial goals has driven B.J. as he strives to be a saver and goal achiever. Even before joining Equitable, friends and family sought his input with their personal and business financial picture.

After working for 17 years in nonprofit organization program management, fundraising and outreach, B.J. completed the Eller MBA program at the University of Arizona, setting the stage for his career transition into financial advising at the age of 40.

A lifelong Arizonan, B.J. grew up in central Phoenix where his family still resides. He and his wife Hanna now live on Tucson's east side with their two sons, Nicholas and Matthew, along with extended family.

Hanna and B.J. both attended the University of Arizona where B.J. was involved as a student ambassador for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Arizona Ramblers Hiking Club treasurer, and Resident Assistant. He studied abroad near Madrid, Spain before earning Bachelors degrees in Environmental Science and Spanish. More recently B.J. completed the Eller MBA program, was President of the Professional MBA Student Association and was selected by his class as Most Influential Student.

In his spare time, he loves to travel, hike, and help with community improvement volunteer projects. He and Hanna spend as much time as they can with their family and friends in the Tucson and Phoenix areas, or at the beach.
