Personal Bio

Tell us a little about how you help Advisors:

As a consultant, I look to assist Advisors open to new ideas and interested in growing their practice. At Loring Ward, I am privileged to collaborate and exchange ideas with some of the best Advisors in the business. I enjoy helping them identify and clarify the challenges they face. Loring Ward provides me with a deep bench of resources, support, and services to help Advisors realize these challenges and achieve the success they desire.

Tell us a little bit about yourself:

Living in the ocean state it’s natural that my wife and children are all avid sailors. Weekends in summer are spent aboard our boat sailing the bays and islands of New England. Come winter, we enjoy the ski slopes of Vermont and the many activities the North Country offers. My wife and I remain involved in several charitable organizations and continue to find it is some of the most rewarding work we do.
