Brad Nelson, P.E. - President and Founder

Brad spent the first part of his career as an engineer.  To achieve financial independence, he thought like an engineer and researched how 'the system' works.  He found that the most reliable information was often at odds with 'common knowledge.'  After a few fits and starts, and a couple of false moves, he figured it out and achieved his independence.  Now retired from engineering and living in San Diego, he helps others invest for financial independence.  Lyon Park is a fee-only, fiduciary investment advisor required by law to put clients' interests first.

Brad has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, a M.S. in Electrical Engineering and has worked in the military, government and private sector.  He served in the military as submariner and retired as a Captain in the Navy Reserve.  In December 2021, he completed the Northwestern University Certificate in Financial Planning Program.
