About Justin

In May of 2020, Justin graduated from Hawaii Pacific University in downtown Honolulu with a BSBA in Finance. Shortly after, he moved back to his original home state of Connecticut and is here to stay even though he misses the year-round 82 degree weather, getting too much sun, and hiking around the countless waterfalls and mountain ridgelines.

During his college years, Justin joined the Laissez-Faire economic society, which really began his interest in Finance and the way the markets work. His first career position was as an intern for his grandmother’s financial planning partnership in Canton, CT, which is where he began to learn about the business. During his last semester at school in 2020, he picked up a temporary job with Wells Fargo Advisors, which he was able to carry over to West Hartford, CT after graduation.

While not at the office, Justin tries to spend as much time as he can hiking new trails, taking road trips, going to the gym every day, and strengthening bonds between both friends and family.
