Michael came from a humble beginning in Lea County, New Mexico where his roots date back to his great-grandfather. His mother’s family were Armenian Genocide refugees from Southeast Turkey and Northern Syria that immigrated to Detroit, Michigan. Growing up in the oil fields of Southeast New Mexico and extensive travels to South America, has offered him a different perspective on life, always be willing to extend a helping hand and have a heart of gratitude.
After graduating from high school Michael served a 2-year mission for his church in Utah. Upon coming home from his mission, he married his beautiful wife, Haley. They have 3 boys, Reid, Pepper, and Nico and a Brittany dog, Remington.
Michael started his career in the financial industry with the ethos he learned while young: always be willing to extend a helping hand. Before making the move to being an independent advisor and starting his own practice, Square72 Investments and became a Registered Representative with LPL Financial, he worked with Fidelity Investments. This move came from the desire to work with his clients in a more personal manner through financial planning and investment strategy.
He accomplishes this by treating each of his clients with the same respect he would want someone to give his mom and dad if they were needing help with their overall financial goals.
Outside of the office, Michael is an avid road cyclist often commuting into his office on his bike. One of his favorite activities with his family is road trips. They have seen almost all of America from their car travelling from Washington to Florida to Michigan to see family. Michael and Haley are both active donors to a scholarship fund for students at BYU-Hawaii and active members of their church community.
