Additional Information

I’ve spent nearly 15 years both learning the tricks and trades of the financial world and running my own operations as a solo practitioner. As a trained journalist, I wrote for publications read by millions, including Fortune, Money and Forbes, discussing investing, personal finance and small business issues. In the process, I delved into what individuals and families need to know and what they should avoid to protect their wealth. I also spent these years working for myself, learning the tricks and tools one needs to succeed as a contractor, consultant, freelancer, solopreneur or small business owner. But I realized that the best way to connect with people and help them achieve success was as a financial planner. I now specialize in working with families or individuals tackle their life and financial goals, as well as helping the self-employed navigate unique financial concerns. Reach out if you have questions about: • Financial and Wealth Management • Self-Employment Setup & Design • A Career Change • Long-term Goal Development • Family Financial Planning I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ with a Master’s in Business and Economic Reporting from New York University and a certificate of Financial Planning from Boston University. I live in Huntington, NY with my wife, two kids and one small dog. You will often find me discussing movies or basketball, when not delving into someone’s financial picture or serving as a jungle gym for my children.
