Personal Info

I graduated from Fairfield University in 2006 with a BS in Computer Science and Mathematics, where I also competed on the diving team for all four years.  I received my Certificate in Retirement Planning from The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania in 2012, and attended a program at the Harvard School of business for investment management and portfolio construction.  In 2016 I obtained my CLU, Chfc, and most notably my CFP designations from the American College of Financial Services.

- I devote a large amount of my time to my family, my community, charity, and service above self organizations.  I serve as the Immediate Past President of the Rotary Club of the Caldwells, I am the Chairman of the Caldwell Street Fair, and I serve on the board of the directors for Help The Children Hear and the Dominican Republic Relief Organziation, which are all recognized 501(c)(3) charities.  I have also been an active participant in the Big Brother Big Sister program for 9 years.

- I have built my life and my practice around helping others on an every day basis with honesty and integrity which I believe has proven to be an integral role in my career.
