What brought you to wealth management as a career?
My father helped cultivate a fascination for investments in me. I remember spending school vacations tracking and investing in stock options.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
I have always been taught the value of fiscal responsibility. Never spend more than you can afford. Live within your means.
What’s most fulfilling about your work?
I really enjoy helping people reduce the financial stress they feel. It means the world to me when people tell me they feel better after a meeting than when they walked into the office.
What’s your ideal day outside the office?
The perfect day out of the office would be on the water paddling, sailing, and/or wake boarding with Robin, my kids, and good friends.
What is your favorite food?
There is nothing quite like a hot plate of fresh fried seafood; I’m a big fan of Lenny and Joes on the CT shore. Shrimp, scallops, and whole clam combo is my go-to order (extra tartar sauce, please)!
