My education and professional background are rooted in finance. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from The Ohio State University with a Bachelors in Business Administration in Finance. My former employers include Pershing (a subsidiary of the Bank of New York) and Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. I spend my free time exploring beautiful New Mexico, hiking with my dog, biking and vacationing with my wife. I am an active member of the Zia Velo Cycling Club right here in Las Cruces and I race mountain and road bikes competitively. I was born and raised in Ohio. After graduating from college my wife and I moved to New York where we spent four years. Currently, we are both happy to be here living it up in Las Cruces!
