*Experience and Employment History information reflects the past 10 years of employment as reported on the SEC ADV filing as of 05/15/2012, and is not a complete representation of the advisor's experience and employment history. Furthermore, the advisor is required to provide this information only while registered with an investment advisor firm and the information is not updated through Form U4 after the advisor ceases to be registered. Therefore, an employment date of "Present" may not reflect the advisor's current employment status.
