For the past 35+ years, I have been fortunate to work in a field that has been a lifelong passion of mine. I began as an intern for Shearson at age 16, which solidified my desire to make my mark on this industry. After high school, I went to work full time at Bear Stearns and attended college in the evenings. I have never looked back.
Every day is different. Every day is a challenge. And I have the privilege of participating in this transformation every day. After spending the first 25 years of my career in New York, I relocated my practice to Newport Beach. I am fortunate to have maintained many long-term client relationships back East as my practice has continued to expand in California.

By discussing your existing investments, tax and estate requirements, time horizons and risk profile, we gain an understanding of your unique goals and the values that are truly meaningful to you. These inputs are the foundation upon which we develop an investment plan specifically tailored to your financial objectives.
