I decided to enter the wealth management and financial planning field after many frustrating years with my employer. While the job security and steady income was important for my family, I did not have the greater sense of feeling that I was making a difference. My wife, Melanie, was employed with a non-profit agency at the time and came home every day feeling good about her purpose and community impact.
After carefully reflecting on my life and several discussions with friends and family, I chose to turn my attention to something where I can really change the quality of life. I have always had a gift to listen and offer genuine guidance. Those gifts coupled with my passion for numbers, research, degrees in finance and economics, and sincerely wanting to help, led me to financial planning.
Today, I enjoy a life filled with meeting people and working with them to determine the best approach for them to accomplish their life's dream. I sincerely believe that everyone deserves sound financial planning and I appreciate being able to make a difference. We all have gifts to share and if I am given an opportunity to help someone in an area that I am passionate and knowledgeable about, I will be there for them.
My office and team are now located in my hometown of Colchester, Connecticut, where I really feel that I am a part of my community and look forward to helping many more individuals and families take pleasure in a fulfilled life.
Achievements and Experience
I'm married to Melanie and we have two sons, Chase and Wilson, and a daughter, Caroline. I'm active in my church and local schools, educating youth and families on finances and charitable giving.
