Co-Founder & Investment Advisor

I am the co-founder and investment advisor for North River Wealth Advisors. In the nearly 20 years I have worked as an investment consultant, my greatest reward is being a trusted advisor and building lifelong friendships with our clients.

I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to serve our clients and be a part of their financial journey. My primary objective is to listen to our clients and develop a custom financial plan that best meets their needs. When we see our clients achieve their goals and we can make their lives easier along the way, that is how we define success. 

Before starting North River, I spent time at both BNY Mellon and Cambridge Associates. In my last role at BNY Mellon Wealth Management, I led our client portfolio management team which worked with hundreds of clients to ensure they had a proper investment strategy in place. My team was responsible for asset allocation, investment manager selection, portfolio monitoring, and providing an outlook on markets.

My academic journey includes an undergraduate degree in Finance and Marketing from the University of Pittsburgh, an MBA from Carnegie Mellon's Tepper School of Business, and a certificate in Financial Planning from Boston University. I am also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional.

In the community, I love to work with students and children to make a positive impact in their life. I am actively involved in youth ministry at Victory Family Church, serve on the Board of the Pittsburgh Youth Golf Foundation, mentor college students, and coach my children's youth sports teams.

My wife, Laura, and I have been married for eleven years and we have three young children that keep us busy. Our family lives in the north hills of Pittsburgh and attends Victory Family Church. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, golfing, and cheering on my Pitt Panthers (H2P!). 

Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Center for Financial Planning, Inc. owns and licenses the certification marks CFP®, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, and CFP® (with plaque design) in the United States to Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., which authorizes individuals who successfully complete the organization’s initial and ongoing certification requirements to use the certification marks.
