Advice Built on experience

I am passionate about helping people realize their retirement dreams. I have been assisting affluent Baby Boomers plan for retirement since 1983.

I view my job as your "Financial Quarterback". Together we create your personal balance sheet and income statement. With the assistance of my network of legal & tax professionals we recommend a plan to grow and protect your assets while trying to minimize your income taxes, inheritance taxes and debt expenses.

I recommend conservative investment strategies that are designed to protect your hard-earned nest egg. These strategies also generate a lifetime of reliable income that is designed to keep pace with inflation.

I believe that communication is the "key" to success. I make the extra effort to understand each client's financial and personal goals. Then I help you implement a written plan that is focused on those goals. I regularly communicate with my clients through phone calls, weekly emails and quarterly portfolio reviews. I believe timely access to your adviser is of paramount importance. I believe  a phone call or email message from a client deserves a response from me within  the same business day.

I am a graduate of Tabor Academy and Bowdoin College. I reside in Falmouth, Massachusetts with my wife Melinda. My community affiliations have included; The Osterville Rotary Club, The Dewitt Clinton Masonic Lodge, Aleppo Shrine Temple, Heritage Museum & Gardens, Job Training & Employment Corp. (JTEC), Salvation Army, First Church, Sandwich, YMCA Basketball, Sandwich Youth Lacrosse, The Ridge Club & the Menahaunt Yacht club.

I am a championship golfer and an avid fisherman.
