“I help emerging leaders and next-generation changemakers achieve long-term financial stability to ensure their sustainable future.”

Hi, I’m Ethan, and I’m a fee-only financial planner and the founder of Planning for Progress. I work to help next-generation leaders from a variety of financial backgrounds plan for and meet their personal and financial goals while improving the world around them. I believe that everyone deserves objective and fair financial advice in order to navigate our complicated economic system. While many financial planning firms have asset minimums or set fees at levels that are out of reach for many, I’m dedicated to providing financial planning services that are accessible for my entire generation.

I live in Washington, DC, where I’ve been a part of social and economic justice campaigns for the better part of a decade. I know how many obstacles are out there on the path to financial sustainability, even for the most fortunate among us. But as your guide, I want to help you set and achieve financial objectives that fit into your broader life goals – not the other way around. I hold a certificate in financial planning from New York University and am a candidate for CFP® certification.

I started Planning for Progress because I saw how few resources are out there for my generation to get truly objective financial advice. I’m committed to and truly enjoy helping my peers plan for the future and demystifying our complex and convoluted financial system.

I hold myself to the highest fiduciary standards in financial planning – which means I will always act in your best interest. And as a fee-only planner, I’m not getting kickbacks or commissions that will influence my advice to you. My only compensation comes from you and I will always work in your best interest.
