My individual expertise includes both equity and fixed income from sales, analyst, and trading points of view. I have been blessed to have covered the entire spectrum of accounts from the smallest individual investors to the largest institutions in the US from all three of these disciplines.

As both a branch manager and product manager I have extensive experience in supervisory matters, including marginability and risk assessment. As a Director of a brokerage firm I was involved in the creation and implementation of a wide variety of investment products and services offered by our investment executives as well as creating and setting policy in a range of areas. I have also been the Chief Fixed Income Strategist for several firms, hosted national conferences, and appeared widely in the press as well as radio and television. I often spoke at seminars on portfolio strategy and asset allocation at many branch offices attended by the public and taught many courses on economics and fixed income securities at two academic institutions. I have been. and am currently, a member of the CFA Society New York (formerly NYSSA), the CFA Institute, and Life member of the Fixed Income Analysts Society, Inc. for several decades.

I have been an arbitrator for FINRA since 1996 and served with other organization that have merged into FINRA, namely the NYSE and ASE. I graduated with an A.B. degree in Economics from Brown University.
