Planning Specialties

I founded Rising Tides Financial to help career driven professionals secure their financial future.  I dedicated myself to the financial planning profession because I felt a responsibility to my family to protect our nest egg and invest it at a reasonable rate of return.  I pursued several advisor whom I felt didn't have my best interests in mind, so I leveraged my extensive background as a CPA and Consultant to become a Certified Financial Planner™ and provide this invaluable service to others.  Throughout my career, I have developed an understanding of the complex relationship between investments and income taxes and I pass that benefit along to my clients.

Additional Information

Like my clients I lead a full, active life. I live just outside of Boston with my wife and two teenage sons. I have a tremendous passion for finance and investing and place immense value in diligence and consistency. I enjoy running, yoga, Crossfit, recreational ice-hockey, and live music. I’ve passed my love of blues guitar along to my sons, who even let me jam with them every now and then.
