Tell us about yourself and your family.
I was born and raised in Midlothian, Virginia. I received a degree in Actuarial Science from Brigham Young University, where I also ran cross country and track and was a three time All-American. After graduating, I ran professionally for a couple years and qualified for the Olympic trials in the 10k and marathon before transitioning to a career in finance. My wife, Faith, and I have two kids. Leon was born in 2017 and Ayana in 2020. In 2023, Faith graduated from The Ohio State School of Dentistry and joined a practice based in North Carolina. We currently live in Pinehurst, North Carolina where I continue to work with the A&A team in a remote capacity.
Why did you pursue a career in finance?
Math was always my best subject when I was younger and so I decided to major in Actuarial Science at school. I remember in high school the first time I learned about compounding interest and have always been intrigued by the concept of having interest work for you and not against you. Working with A&A allows me to help others apply these financial principles to help them achieve their short and long-term goals.
What is your role at Antolino & Associates?
I am our investment manager. My primary responsibility is to oversee our investment management strategies and to make sure our client’s accounts are allocated properly. My role includes leading our investment committee, training new employees about our Portfolio Management Program, and regularly placing trades in client accounts.
What might we catch you doing for fun on the weekend?
I enjoy staying active by running, biking, and golfing. During the warmer months you will regularly catch me with the kids at our local pool. We also enjoy attending sporting events and traveling to visit friends and family.
