Tell us about yourself and your family.

I grew up on the westside of Cleveland and currently reside in Grove City, OH, with my wife, Christina, who works in human resources for BMW Financial Services.  We have 2 children, Jackson, and Max, with one more on the way!  My parents still reside in Cleveland, OH and I have a brother who lives in Boynton Beach, FL with a family of his own.  In our spare time, we enjoy spending time with friends, going on bike rides, swimming, and we are diehard Buckeyes, Guardians, Browns and Cavaliers fans.

Why did you pursue a career in finance?

I decided to pursue a career in finance because I saw my parents work 2 jobs to put my brother and I through school.  This motivated me to pursue a career in the financial services industry, because I believe there is no greater satisfaction than helping others make wise choices with their money to reach the goal of obtaining financial independence.

What is your role at Antolino & Associates?

I joined our firm in April of 2023 as a Financial Planner, with aspirations of becoming an advisor.  Prior to joining the firm, I spent 9 plus years at Nationwide Insurance.  As a planner, I help the firm’s advisors prepare, plan and present ideas to clients to empower them into making smart financial decisions and inspire confidence in making these choices.  I have the series 7,6, 63, Life, Health, and Accident licenses.  I am currently pursuing my CFP® certification.

What might we catch you doing for fun on the weekend?

I enjoy spending most of my time with friends and family.  Favorite pastimes include playing golf, basketball, bike rides, attending comedy shows, traveling and I love to make barbeque on our smoker!
