Experience Makes all the difference

I joined UBS in 2006; but I’ve been a Financial Advisor for over 30 years. Shortly after graduating from Princeton University, I joined one of Smith Barney’s predecessor firms, where I spent 25 years building my practice and helping clients realize their financial and personal goals. Nine years ago, I moved my team to the UBS Headquarters Complex because it offers an unparalleled degree of support for private clients. On the personal side, I love spending time with my family. I’m also a bit of a health nut; I find that exercise is a great stress reducer. When I can find the time, I read historical novels and enjoy the cultural beat of New York City. I’m also energized by the work that I do with nonprofit educational groups in New York City.
