Tell us about yourself and your family.
I was born in southern Ohio, but grew up in Point Pleasant, WV. I later attended and graduated from Marshall University in Huntington, WV. I currently live in Gallipolis, Ohio with my daughter, Sophie, who is in High School. She is a ‘sports kid’ so we enjoy spending our time attending her sporting events. I also enjoy being a father and spend a lot of my spare time promoting fatherhood initiatives in the community.
Why did you pursue a career in finance?
I graduated from college with a concentration in Finance and have had my insurance license since 1989. I have always enjoyed building relationships and felt that a career in finance and insurance would be a natural fit. A finance career allows you to teach people I care about the basics of budgeting. I can show them how to save and invest, then show them long-term results of financial discipline, and help them achieve goals for themselves and their families. It is very rewarding.
What is your role at Antolino & Associates?
I came to work with Antolino & Associates in 2017 because of a completed merger with J.E. Morrison & Associates. I had worked for J.E. Morrison since April 2009. My current role is a Financial Planner. Additionally, I help manage day-to-day operations in our Gallipolis, Ohio branch location.
What might we catch you doing for fun on the weekend?
Attending a local sporting event that my daughter is participating in. If she is not a participant that weekend, I can be found attending a sporting event through the school year supporting other students in the community. Our summers are spent as a 4-H family where we work with show goats for at least 4 months out of the year.
