Languages spoken by this financial professional: Italian, Spanish

About 21 years ago, right before I started in this business, I was newly married to my wife Monica. We had no life insurance and barely any savings. When Monica became pregnant with our first child, Nicholas, we became concerned with our lack of financial planning. It was then we were referred to our Prudential Advisor. He helped us protect our family, and I could tell he had a passion for his career. Something clicked inside of me, and I realized this was the Job for me.

Worried About Market Volatility?

If market volatility has you feeling worried, it’s important not to let emotions get in the way. There are some things you should consider that may help manage expectations when markets start moving.

Leaders Council


Life Happens. Being prepared makes all the difference.

You have options when it comes to your financial future - no matter your life situation.


As a business owner, you have a lot to protect – your business, your employees and your family. Life insurance is often purchased for personal financial protection but can also help with three key areas of business planning: business continuation, executive compensation and retirement. We can help you unlock the value of your business to help you reach your goal of retiring without depleting the business’s capital.

Exploring Financial Strategies

We’ll work together on your toughest investment challenges – whether you need reliable income, protection from market volatility and other risks, or continuing your family legacy.

Saving for Retirement

Get help reaching your retirement goals on your terms with an annuity, 401(k) or IRA. An annuity can be a way to provide retirement income and defer year-end taxes, and an IRA and 401(k) give you options to save for the next phase of your life. See if one or all of these retirement vehicles are right for you.
