Chief Investment Officer, Financial Planner

When you are not at the office, you can often be found doing what? On a softball field, at a DC sporting event, or at the pool with my wife and kids.

Where is your happy place? The Outer Banks in North Carolina. We do a family beach trip at Nags Head every summer.

What is something others may be surprised to learn about you? Ten Sundays a year I am on the sidelines of an NFL game. I am an Injury Video Review Technician for the National Football League.

My friends/kids always make fun of me for my singing. I am horrible. Except my daughter who actually enjoys it. She is too young to recognize how bad I am.

Name one thing you couldn’t live without. Cows! I love cheese and drink a gallon of milk a week.
