I will always be a Peekskill kid, born and raised forty-five minutes north of New York City and just thirty minutes from West Point (USMA). After graduating from Hendrick Hudson High School, I pursued my dream of joining and becoming a United States Marine. I served from 1999 – 2006, during which time I participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Upon my honorable discharge from the Marine Corps, I relocated to Southern California, where I accepted an offer to join Morgan Stanley. In 2005 I moved my practice to Banc of America Investment Services (now Merrill Lynch) and once more in 2009 to Wells Fargo Advisors, where I enjoyed the privilege of serving my clients for eleven years.
I currently hold the Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®) designation, which was obtained and taught by The American College of Financial Services. Also, I hold the Certified Investment Management Analyst® (or CIMA® designation, administered by Investment Management Consultants Association®, and taught by Yale School of Management.
As a comprehensive Financial Advisor, I can help in the following areas.
- General principles of financial strategies (for example, personal financial statements, net worth statements)
- Insurance planning and risk management
- Investment planning
- Income tax planning strategies
- Retirement planning
- Estate planning strategies
I have been with my wife Florinda for fifteen years, and we have three children, Vincent, Alexander, and Isabella. Outside of work and family, I volunteer my time helping men who suffer from drug and alcohol abuse. I also volunteer to work with teenagers who are serving time with the Los Angeles Youth Authority (CYA), where I mentor these young men and encourage them to turn their lives around. My faith shows me that I must carry a message of hope to those who may be hopeless.
