How did you become a financial advisor?: Two reasons: I followed in my father’s (and grandfather’s) footsteps in joining the family business. Second reason, sitting in Marketing class at Siena College in the last semester of my senior year, I realized that the country, most notably the baby-boom generation, would have an enormous need for these services. I wanted to help people and it was a natural fit. There is nothing I enjoy more than sitting at a client’s kitchen table and setting them on a path to financial independence.

Five years from now I will be: Known as the “go-to” financial advisor in the area

Favorite Quote: “Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends” - Clarence, It’s a Wonderful Life

Favorite Book: I have several, but the latest book I have read and enjoyed was Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman by Jon Krakauer. Tillman was an extraordinarily interesting (and rare) type of person. A great read.
