After graduating from Penn State University with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, I was lucky enough to meet with an advisor who helped me to start saving and investing. Unfortunately, I soon realized that the financial services industry is full of advisors working for themselves, instead of their clients. Years of underperforming investments, along with a general lack of concern for my goals from several advisors, led me to manage my own investments. And later, while working for Lucent Technologies during the Dot-com years, I had the opportunity to attend Lehigh University and graduate with an MBA in Finance. MBA fresh in-hand, I decided to pursue a career in finance. I worked in NYC for Barclays Capital where I soon learned that I preferred working with individuals as opposed to large institutions. I co-founded Schuylkill Financial in order to help everyday people plan for their future. Our business is centered around developing and setting realistic goals with our clients. To do that we need to be passionate about our clients and responsive to their needs as we help them clarify their financial picture. When I am not in the office, I love spending time with my wife and children, doing just about anything outdoors. Hiking and mountain biking are at the top of my list and I can usually be identified as the guy toting one of my 2 little ones on my back and dog by my side on many of Downingtown's trails.

About Schuylkill Financial LLC

We bring sophisticated planning techniques to busy individuals who lack the time to do it themselves, with over 40 years of combined banking and Wall Street experience.

I have lived my whole life in Delaware County, first raised in Newtown Square with my parents and 2 older sisters. I graduated from Devon Preparatory school, with much appreciation for a good Catholic school education. Then I graduated from Villanova University with a degree in Sociology & Business. I broke my leg in March 2001, but I was still able to get back on my feet in time join my classmates at graduation two months later in May. For 2 years, I worked for a family owned local brokerage firm, supporting most of the sales reps in the office. I joined my family firm in May 2003, where I am currently a practicing CPA and a holder of the CFP® designation. I am currently the managing partner, but Id be nowhere without the help of our staff, Bernadette, Lorraine, Betsy & Michael. My education, credentials, experience and staff give me the ability to integrate clients financial goals with smart investment and tax planning. I currently live in Wayne with my wife and 3 kids. The most challenging thing Ive done was a 30 day live-in program for students of Aikido, a Japanese martial art. I spent the month of July 2004 in Chicago, living and training with other like-minded Americans and Europeans, and eventually earning my black belt in July 2006, after 7 years of training.\

My passion for finance comes from a family heritage of teaching and caring for others. Finance is a complex area of life, yet in most states, it is not required in schools. As a financial planner, I have the ability to make a significant impact in the lives of the individuals, couples and families I serve. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband Jim and my two sons, Christian and Dylan. We love visiting places as a family, and our kids' energy ensures we stay active.
