Wealth Management Advisor


An immigrant of India, I have been a small business owner much of my adult life. In India, I owned an advertising specialty business and print shop. Today, I am a representative for The Columns Resource Group.

After moving to the United States, I wanted to resume my printing and advertising business, but quickly realized the market dynamics were quite different than back in India. The difficulty of raising capital and understanding labor laws made my plans impractical.

I quickly became aware that seniors in the United States were not always prepared for retirement and sometimes are forced to work in order to maintain their lifestyle. That convinced me to set about helping people create, protect, and preserve their wealth in order to fulfill their dreams, whenever they may occur. I became a Wealth Management Advisor with The Columns Resource Group.

I live with my wife Surekha & son Vikram, Resident of Indian Hills, Edina, MN

I enjoy spending time with my family and travelling. Every summer camping is a must! I also enjoy taking my son to soccer and love to spend time reading and gardening.
