Entrepreneur/Business Operations/Finance. Co founder and Chief Operations Officer of Shore to Shore Inc. of Miamisburg, Ohio. Successfully grew this start up into a leading international supplier of garment tags and labels with a focus on international supply chain logistics and UPC data management solutions. I sold my interest in 2003 to pursue other professional interests.
After selling my interest in Shore to Shore, I began informally helping family and friends with their personal finances. An offer from a friend who was a CFP lured me into the profession on a full time basis and I started working toward my CFP certification. In 2007 I started my own firm, Financial Pathways in its present location. We have been growing successfully, as people increasingly are looking for alternatives to the product sales oriented approach still common in the industry. I added Luba Globerman to the team in 2009.
Married to Laura for 27 years with 4 school and college aged children ages 14 through 22. In my spare time I am actively involved as a scouting volunteer (Assistant Scoutmaster) and enjoy fly fishing, hiking, and the great outdoors.
