About Me

Hi, I'm Erik Baskin. After graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 2018 with academic distinction in Economics, I commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. As a captain of a Division 1 hockey team in college, I had a natural competitive drive and was looking to pour myself into something that was mine. I decided to pursue my passion in personal finance head-on, earning my MBA, passing my CFP exam, and launching Baskin Financial Planning in 2021, all while serving on Active Duty.

When I'm not busy building financial plans, I keep busy by spending time with my wife Shelley and my two Greyhounds Rafa and Poppy, coaching hockey, working out, playing golf, hunting, going to country concerts, or reading a book on my favorite subject- personal finance.
