Not only is my team available at your convenience, but Janney has also structured itself to be immediately responsive to clients’ needs—all levels of Janney’s staff are easily accessible, and possess a willingness and enthusiasm to help.
My mission is to help you to define your financial objectives, and then use that knowledge to develop — together — a plan that is tailored to fit your unique needs and preferences, and is in your best interest. I’m proud to offer comprehensive financial planning resources, providing you access to education, advice, planning, and consultation.
I began my career in one of the equity market’s most tumultuous months on record – and over the past 27 years I have helped clients manage their wealth throughout good times and bad. I joined Janney after serving at UBS for 12 years. Prior to that, I spent 23 years at a couple of regional investment firms.
With my clients, I emphasize asset allocation and total portfolio management with a focus on retirement income planning; I also help them with education funding, structures for charitable giving and estate planning. I am FINRA-registered and hold Series 7, 24, 63, and 66 securities licenses as well as licenses for Life, Accident, and Health Insurance and variable annuities. I am also State of Connecticut certified in Long Term Care.
I live in New London, CT with my wife Celeste, and our dog Grady. I am actively involved in many community organizations. In my free time I enjoy international traveling, golf and gardening.
We collaborate with other Janney specialists, as needed, who have in-depth experience in specific disciplines. Together, we can assess your unique situation, analyze difference strategies, and develop a plan fit for your unique needs and goals.
