About Me:

  • I grew up in the Southern Tier in a small town called Canaseraga. After college I moved to Syracuse to pursue my career in financial planning. Over the last decade, I have grown my practice with an emphasis on creating and building relationships with my clients. In 2010, I met my wife Brittany through a mutual friend. We married in January 2017 and in November welcomed our beautiful daughter Noelle into the world. She recently turned 3 and is our reason for everything. She was diagnosed as on the Autism Spectrum at the beginning of 2020 and we have since become invested in the Autism community, raising over $700 this year for Autism Speaks.
