Meet The Finance Futurists Team


Hi there, I’m Annie! I’m a licensed real estate professional with several years of experience in the tech startup space in various roles. I’m also a traveler, foodie, runner, and writer. Like most people, I’ve had a lot of downtime during the pandemic to reflect on my goals and values. After learning about the stock market and cryptocurrencies from close friends, I started aggressively saving and investing, accruing a 6-figure net worth by 24.

I invest primarily in growth and innovation stocks and cryptocurrencies, though I balance some of the risks through S&P 500 index funds and I-bonds. With Finance Futurists, I plan on documenting my journey to financial freedom and sharing what I learn along the way.

I strongly believe in the importance of financial literacy and educating people on ways to build wealth and confidence. My hope is to help level the playing field for Gen Zers (like myself) and Millennials and show that anyone can build a solid financial foundation no matter what their background is.

Hi there, I’m Brij! I’m a recent college grad and tech consultant, traveler, writer, and photographer. After I graduated, I began life on my own and taught myself the personal finance basics. I built a budget and started to save and invest to achieve solid financial footing and to make my dream of world travel a reality.

I prefer to invest with a higher risk and return strategy but understand the value of a safe foundation. The bedrock of my personal finance machine is made up of passive, long term investments in index funds and ETFs. After those investments, I hold growth stocks and cryptocurrencies to capture higher potential returns.

Through Finance Futurists, I plan to share what I’ve learned about setting a strong financial foundation, investing, and other lessons along the way. I believe that helping other young people learn financial literacy and good money habits will empower them to create the financial foundations to live their best lives.

Hello, hello! I’m the founder of a few companies, competitive breakdancer, and home cook. In my last year of college at University of California, Irvine my Uncle Ray had me read the infamous Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Wow, did it change my perspective of personal finance and eventually my life.

While I dabble in a lot of the traditional investment vehicles (Stocks, Mutual Funds, etc) most of my investments go back into either my business or alternative assets such as cryptocurrencies and funds. 

I tend to be aggressive in my investment strategy and go after investments with higher returns but more risk. Within 2 years after graduating I accrued over 6 figures in savings. My next financial goal is to acquire an apartment building  in Southern California.
