I work with socially- and environmentally-conscious individuals, families, business owners, and corporations, providing a returns-focused alignment of investments and financial planning with your values, beliefs, and interests.

This focus on Sustainable/ESG Investing (Environmental-Social-Governance) is my way of making a difference and helping like-minded clients do the same through the responsible use of assets.

As a former business owner, a second specialty is business consulting on 401(k) and corporate retirement plans and other financial matters such as key person retention, key employee contingency planning, cross-purchase/buy-sell agreements, deferred compensation, and succession planning. If desired, we integrate a percentage of Sustainable/ESG choices into 401(k) plans.

SPECIALTIES:

  • Returns-Focused Sustainable/ESG Investing
    Align your investments with your values, beliefs, and interests.
  • 401(k) Plan Management with (optional) Integration of Sustainable/ESG Choices
    Delivering responsive support and advice to program participants.

I serve clients as a fiduciary advocate in every facet of modern investment management and financial planning: Retirement Planning, Tax Strategies, Insurance Planning, Estate Planning, Business & Succession Planning, and Corporate Retirement Program Management. I find reward in helping people in a crucial area of life that can feel confusing and mystifying.

A Princeton graduate, I enjoyed a first successful career as an award-winning president and director of an advertising/design/marketing firm that I founded in Portsmouth, NH and later moved to Boston. That experience brings a wealth of maturity, insight, and perspective to my current work.

I live in West Palm Beach, FL with my partner Julie. We both have adult children from previous marriages, including my daughter, a married hotel executive who lives and works in NYC. I regularly travel back to the Northeast to visit clients and enjoy family, friends, and my favorite places on the coast from Portsmouth to Boston to Cape Cod as well as the region of my youth, the New York metro area. Our firm works with clients throughout the U.S.

In my personal time, you can find me in a hot yoga studio, in a (futile) search for a better golf swing, hiking trails around the Everglades, serving friends and family as an amateur chef, or lounging in a well-chosen beach location. On rare occasions, I've done all in the same day!

“My mission is to provide advice and planning strategies that support clients on the path to achieving (and preserving) financial freedom—maximizing asset appreciation and investment income while addressing contingencies and minimizing risk. Combined with my specialization in Sustainable-ESG Investing, we help create better lives and make a difference.”

Socially Responsible investing involves the exclusion of certain securities for nonfinancial reasons. This may result in the investor forgoing some market opportunities that may have been available to those not subject to such criteria. There is no guarantee that any investment goal will be met.
