19 Years of Experience
I enjoy traveling extensively and attempt to visit warm destinations as often as possible. I have a particular taste for island settings as well as European destinations.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends throughout each and every year particularly during the holiday season.
I often find myself attempting to maintain my health and fitness by walking outdoors and in the fitness center.
I serve as Treasurer and Board Member of the Eric Levinson Memorial Foundation, a Freehold Borough non-profit organization offering scholarships to local children.

Barron’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors by State list for 2017 is an honor awarded to a select group of advisors for quality of service and success in business and ethics. The Forbes ranking of Top Next-Generation Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative and quantitative data, rating thousands of wealth advisors born in or after 1980. Advisors are interviewed by telephone and in person to evaluate service models, investing process, experience levels and integrity. Additional factors considered include compliance record, client retention, revenues produced for their firms and assets managed. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receives a fee in exchange for rankings.
