I take what I do seriously but never take myself too seriously. I am proud of building two successful businesses in the finance industry from the ground-up. I am also a licensed attorney, even though I am not practicing right now. I have many interests outside of work, including Italian language and culture. I am fluent in Italian and studied and worked in Italy three separate times while in my twenties. I have not been back since 2005, though. So, I would love to get back as soon as possible.
