Steve finds fulfillment in tackling complex matters for clients and has an innate ability to think outside of the box in finding simplified solutions to fit even the most complicated situations for clients.

Steve has a passion for spreading financial literacy.

It is Steve’s goal as a trusted advisor to provide an enjoyable client experience while simplifying matters for his clients and providing any education needed to ensure that each client understands their overall financial plan and the strategies used along their financial journey.

Outside of the office, Steve is an active member of several charitable organizations. Steve is a former board member (but still good friend) of his local Rotary club and is the current National Foundation chairman for the Hackensack Elks. Through these organizations, he organizes events to support children of the community including an annual community baby shower for expectant mothers in need, an annual new coat distribution, and outings for children living in a local residential care facility. He also is actively involved with organizing children’s literacy programs with Hackensack’s Johnson Public Library for the youth of the community including having handmade and installed more than thirty little libraries in the Hackensack community.

Steve resides in Hackensack, NJ with his wife Tara and their rescue dogs, Buster and Charlie (Charlotte). In his spare time, you can find Steve in the kitchen, anywhere by the water (his happy place) with a good book, or crafting something in his woodshop.
