Since the firm’s inception, Berknell Financial Group has become one of the most notable, millennial-led financial services organizations.

In May 2022, Dasarte and partner Emlen Miles-Mattingly launched the onyx Advisor Network, which helps underrepresented advisors start to scale and sustain their practices.
Coined a "financial thought leader" and guru by NerdWallet and Financial Planning Magazine, Dasarte believes in meeting you where you are. He offers advice and insight through his weekly podcast, The Young Money Podcast, three books, and weekly blog. His prayer is that you may design your wealth on your terms.
