You have two minutes to give a speech on anything! What would your topic be? I would likely speak about personal finance, which is what I specialize in. I love sharing information with people about the investment management industry, and “pulling back the curtain” on how the industry really works to help people properly invest for the future. 

If you could learn any one skill right now, what would it be? I’ve always regretted not learning to play piano, but I feel like that ship has sailed! I think if I had to choose something right now, it would be a toss-up between going to culinary school or learning how to code.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? Invisibility, I think. I’d love to be a “fly on the wall” in whatever rooms interest me at the time and hear and learn what really goes on behind closed doors!

If you only had to eat one dish for the rest of time, what would it be? My daughter Charlotte will love this answer – short ribs and mashed potatoes.

What is the best vacation you ever had? My family and I spend time on LBI every summer, and it’s my absolute favorite. They love it too – and spending time with my wife and kids is the best thing in the world.

If your pet could talk, what do you think they might say about you? My dog Archie (a 100+ pound Bernadoodle) would probably say “FEED ME MORE!”. He never seems to be full…. and he’s big enough to take food right off the kitchen counter, which he does all the time if we aren’t careful! We call him the “Island Shark” because he circles the island in our kitchen just waiting for someone to not be paying attention.
