I joined UBS in 2006; but I’ve been a Financial Advisor for over 40 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. 14 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.

It is hard to believe that I have already spent over 20 years in the financial services industry. After graduating from University of Vermont, I started my career at Marsh & McLennan as an insurance broker. I made a big change in 2000 when I joined Sanford Bernstein as a Financial Advisor, helping families and individuals achieve their goals. Like Harry, I saw a better chance to take care of my clients at UBS and moved my practice here in 2009.

Outside of work, I enjoy staying active. My wife and I have three children so many weekends are spent cheering on their soccer, lacrosse or swim teams. When not on the sidelines, some of my favorite activities include skiing, biking, running, and playing platform tennis. I also value the time I spend volunteering as the Treasurer for a local charity that works to help underprivileged children in New York City.
