➨➨ Check out my entrepreneur video series, Intrepid Insights, to learn from some amazing founders I have worked with!

Hello, my friends call me Derek or DJ.  Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our team and what we do.  I am the Founder and CEO of Intrepid Wealth Partners, one of four companies I have been involved with.

I am married to my lovely wife Amanda.  We have a 6 year old son (going on 15!) Neary, and an old rescue dog, Murphy, who is a mix between a German Sheppard, Husky, and something else!  We love to travel, meet new people, and try new and different types of food.

I am an American and Irish dual national, having been born in Dublin, Ireland.  My son also enjoys the benefits of dual citizenship, however my wife was born and raised in Minnesota.   Our travels throughout the world have taught us that most people are genuinely good and want what is best for themselves, their families, and others.  We have had the privilege of meeting some great people along the way, who have helped expand our horizons, both professionally and personally.

As a Certified Financial Planner® Professional, I specialize working with Entrepreneurs, Founders, Business Owners, Startup Companies and their Families to realize their hopes, dreams & goals through the leverage of financial education and our financial planning process.

Please think of me and my team as your resource.  Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have and don't forget to check out my blog, Smart & Simple Finance, to help you manage your money like you own it.

Should I use IRA money to pay off my mortgage to save on interest?

There are so many factors to consider in order to see what would be the best course of action for you. I would encourage you to connect with a CFP professional and tax professional to see what would make the most sense given your financial situation. Taking the money out of your IRA may not be the best choice...

Best Regards,
