Portfolio Manager

What fuels you every day in your work?

Making a positive impact. I find motivation in knowing the work we do at Modera helps our clients reach their unique definition of success.

What do you enjoy most about working at Modera?

I enjoy working with and learning from a team of incredibly kind and intelligent people. When you mix intellectual curiosity with a willingness to serve others, extraordinary things happen. Witnessing the outcomes of such collaboration is very fulfilling.

When you retire you’re going to…?

Travel with my wife and hopefully squeeze in a few marathons, ultra-marathons, Ironmans etc.

Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?

I grew up just outside of Flint, MI in a town called Grand Blanc. I now live in Black Mountain, NC, where my family and I enjoy the mild weather and beautiful mountains!
