Friendship is knowing everything about someone and liking them anyway.
I'm a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.

Who I am and what I do
I am originally from Providence, Rhode Island. I moved to upstate New York in the summer of 1994 and attended Averill Park High School. Upon graduating in 1997, I decided to pursue a Bachelor's Degree at the University of Albany. In my junior year I decided to put college on hold to enlist in the United States Marine Corps.
In the Marines I served as a Nuclear, Biological, Chemical Defense Specialist with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Marine Divisions. In 2005 I returned to college attending Rhode Island College to complete my Bachelor's with a major in Psychology graduating with honors in 2006. I now reside in Northbridge with my wife and three children.
Beginning my professional career at Franchise Business Brokers Inc. until moving on to become a Mortgage Advisor in 2006. I learned quickly working hard to give my clients the greatest opportunities for success in their Real Estate endeavors. In 2016 I was welcomed to the Peoples team, the best of the best in the business. Peoples is a direct mortgage lender, not a broker meaning my client's files would be under my team's control to approve or deny based on the current guidelines. I recognized the higher level of professionalism and service that Wintrust maintained and then realized that by becoming part of this team I could better serve his clients. I am thankful to be surrounded by so many incredibly talented and supportive people.
I am excited about my future at Peoples. My career is one where I can support my family by helping others purchase the home of their dreams, or refinance to accomplish new financial milestones. I always work with the goal of advising my clients on building financial freedom through Real Estate. I believe that the greatest part of my work is that I can be myself: a normal guy with the talent and skill that allows me to help others while creating lifelong relationships.
