How did you get into financial services?
My interest began while I was working on improving my own family’s financial health. I knew that if I could do it for us, I could also help other families get on the right path. I enjoy working with and helping other people, so this has become something of a mission for me.
What makes you an effective Wealth Manager?
In addition to my skills, judgment, and experience, I have a solid work ethic. And it doesn’t hurt that I absolutely love what I do. I believe that if you love your work, it shows.
What do you do for fun?
My wife and I were blessed with two beautiful girls who are our pride and joy. We enjoy riding bikes and playing at the neighborhood playground, and love anything to do with water, so we often take them swimming, fishing, or tubing on the Rhode River.
Family means everything to me. If I’m with my family, I’m having fun.
