Q: What are your role and responsibilities at Birch Hill?
A: My primary responsibilities include portfolio management, client service and new business. I’m also involved in the investment research process.

Q: What do you think Birch Hill’s best qualities are?

Q: What about what you do brings you the most personal satisfaction?
A: Helping individuals and families plan for and ultimately achieve their most important goals while staying true to their personal and family values.

Q: When you’re not working, how do you spend your time?
A: I’m often with my wife on the sideline of a soccer field or basketball court cheering on our sons’ teams. We also love listening to our daughter’s a capella concerts.
