Owner and Co-Founder of ProWealth 

  • Five Star Wealth Manager1 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 – recognized in Forbes Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, and Boston Magazine
  • Five Star 40 under 40 Wealth Managers1 award winner 2020  – recognized in Fortune Magazine

I grew up in Massachusetts and continue to reside here now with my beautiful wife, Alyssa, and our amazing one-year-old son, Nicholas. 

My fascination and passion for economics and finance began in my freshman year at St. John's Prep High School and continued to grow throughout my college years at Bentley University, where I majored in Economics and Finance. My interest and education in the industry helped me jump start a career in financial services beginning back in 2009. 

Over the years, with the help of my team, we have grown into a full-fledged financial services practice helping clients achieve better lives through better money decisions. 

Outside of financial services, here are some personal and fun facts about me:

  • I am proud to serve on the board of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem. I was also a youth member of this club as a child and a volunteer worker as a teenager.
  • My family is extremely important to me. I cherish spending down time with my son and wife, and enjoy playing competitive yard games with our large extended family. 
  • Although I played lacrosse at Bentley University, basketball is my favorite sport. I continue to play competitively in men's leagues and tournaments across the state. (I'm 6'4 and good if you ever need an extra player.)
  • I enjoy golf, but need to work on my game. It is a slow work in progress.
  • I love to eat and I love to work out, luckily those things complement each other when done correctly.

At ProWealth, my specific focus is helping physicians, business owners, and executives clarify and achieve their ideal lifestyles, both now and in retirement, through ongoing financial guidance. 

Please feel more than welcome to reach out with any questions about your financial situation and goals, or if you prefer, to schedule a complimentary introductory call. It all starts with a conversation!
