Stephen has a broad background in corporate marketing and sales management, and he has owned various businesses in the fields of business consulting, business sales and acquisitions, franchising, real estate, and personal consulting in the financial services sector. He has developed and trained teams in all of these business areas over the years.


“Steve” has also been a personal production leader in his capacities of owner and manager of these ventures, as he has always had a personal drive to lead by example. As an entrepreneur, he is usually working in multiple or combined facets of these somewhat related but differing specialties of the business and personal consulting world. Steve has a great thirst for knowledge and the desire to be on the cutting edge of product development and technology. Together with a commitment to bring the best possible solutions to his clients, these qualities have produced a broad and interesting career. He has been insurance licensed for over 30 years, so he has seen quite an evolution in the field as new and better products are brought into the marketplace to meet the challenges of changing times and the changing needs of the consumer.


Steve thoroughly enjoys making a difference in people’s lives with the perspectives and solutions he brings to the table. Having received an engineering degree many years ago, a problem-solving approach in building and protecting wealth is second nature to him.

Leland Tsai

Account Executive

CA Insurance License #0M49389



Leland has a broad background in product development, marketing, and management in the semiconductor and computer industries.  In his career, he was recognized by key customers for his proactive approach in ensuring their success as his top priority.  With a commitment to this client-first approach, Leland has turned to financial services to help clients achieve secured retirement.


His retirement planning philosophy was greatly influenced by the book, “The Power of Zero”, written by David McKnight.  Strategy-based planning and alternative investment strategies are two main pillars practiced for achieving tax efficiency and gaining better control over one’s hard-earned money.


To find a personalized solution to meet clients' needs, Leland utilizes a rigorous planning process to identify his client’s retirement objectives.  This begins with careful gathering and understanding of information, then development of a financial plan that is personalized and updated to ensure progress in reaching those objectives.  


Born in Taiwan, Leland came to the U.S. to earn his advanced degrees.  Besides English, he is proficient in Mandarin and Japanese.  Leland currently resides in Sunnyvale, California.  In his spare time, Leland enjoys hiking, reading, and exploring different cultures through food and travel.

Kyle Christenson

Tax Specialist - Enrolled Agent



Kyle Christenson, principal of Modern Financial Services and former IRS auditor for more than 5 years, has partnered with Lifeline Innovations & Insurance Solutions LLC to provide the best planning strategy possible for our clients.


Kyle entered the tax profession at the age of 19 as a tax intern at a local CPA office and worked there continuously throughout his undergraduate program.  Upon graduating, Kyle took a position as an auditor with the IRS in San Jose, California, knowing that he could accumulate a vast collection of knowledge and resources.  In order to prepare himself for life as a tax professional and representative outside of the IRS, Kyle considered every audit he had from the position of the IRS and the tax professional, a unique and rewarding strategy that has helped him master the craft of minimizing taxes.


Kyle left the IRS in January of 2016 after acquiring a local tax practice and has never looked back.  It takes a passion and a fiery desire to be better than the competition when it comes to strategizing for tax and financial purposes, as the material can be dry to many.  Kyle has that drive in spades and prides himself on his outside-the-box thinking.  Kyle is a firm believer that we can save clients more money by abiding the tax laws than we will by taking frivolous tax positions. 


We would be thrilled to demonstrate the benefits of tying your financial and insurance planning conducted with Lifeline Innovations & Insurance Solutions for those that are interested in truly maximizing their strategic planning.


When Kyle isn’t working long hours during the tax season, he enjoys fishing, hiking, and spending time with his beautiful wife, Jess, and newborn son, William.  If he’s really lucky and has the time, Kyle loves open tracking at the local California race tracks as well as travel.
