I have more than 40 years of experience guiding individuals, multigenerational families and privately owned corporations towards achieving their financial objectives. Prior to joining UBS in 2015, I was an Executive Director and Retirement Plan Consultant at Morgan Stanley and predecessor firms for 31 years. I served on the Business Owner's Executive Council, the Mutual Fund Advisory Council and was honored to be named one of the Top 400 Financial Advisors in America by the Financial Times. Over the years I have written articles for numerous financial publications and have been interviewed by various newspapers and magazines. I've also appeared on television when my views were sought, especially during turbulent periods, and I hosted a radio program. To assist the public and others in my industry, I've lectured at seminars and other forums. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from Penn State University and am a passionate supporter of Penn State, including awarding annual scholarships through the Sobocinski Family Scholarship Fund. In my non-working time, I give back by being on the Board of Directors of the Family Service League, an organization that since 1926 has provided physical and emotional aid to Long Island's most vulnerable citizens. I'm also the co-chairperson of an annual golf outing that raises money to benefit Women In Distress of Broward County whose mission is to stop domestic violence abuse for everyone through intervention, education and advocacy. My wife, Lynn, and I live in Huntington Bay, NY, and we enjoy playing golf, boating, and being with our children, grandchildren and friends.

I hold Series 7, 52, 63, 65 and 66 as well as Life, Health and Variable Annuities Licenses.
