I have been with Sunbelt Business Brokers of Clearwater, FL since 2005 and a member of the BBF & IBBA.

In addition to my combined 28 years of experience in sales, 15 years were in investment banking as a Senior Investment Executive focusing primarily on evaluating businesses based on earnings and growth potential.

I have also been President and CFO of my own business, handling all financial aspects including preparing financial reports, income statements, balance sheets, cash flow statements, profit & loss statements, and tax returns.

I am a native of Long Island, New York and relocated to Florida after serving in the United States Air Force, and obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Georgia State University. I currently reside in the Tampa Bay Area with my wife and have a son attending Florida State University.
