David joined Austin Wealth Management in late 2021 as a financial planning associate. He has been interested in personal finance for years and is pursuing the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification.
David’s interest in investing began in his teenage years through conversations with his parents and grandfather, a retired petroleum engineer who set up Roth IRAs for his grandchildren.
David worked 14 years in his family’s Central Texas newspaper, interviewing and writing about hundreds of people from a variety of backgrounds. His experience in a multi-generational family company helps him appreciate the goals and planning needs of families and business owners.
