This is the best career, because I love helping people! Plus, working with great doctors, a fun team, and most importantly wonderful patients makes each day a pleasure! After years of training, 25+ successfully completed actuarial exams, obtaining multiple designations (FSA, CFA, and MBA), and a 20+ year career working as an actuary, I decided to make a life change and join my wife and brother-in-law in managing our family’s dental office. This decision has been a great one, I have joined a wonderful team where all our efforts surround serving our fantastic family of patients.
On a personal note, I reside in Riverwoods where I live with the love of my life and my wife - Beth, and our four adorable children (Jordyn, Jacob, Samantha, and AJ). So, as to be expected with young children, I am always running around after them. With the few minutes of personal time I get, you can find me playing basketball, golf, cards, heading to the movies or theater, or just having a nice dinner with friends.
Please stop in and say hello, I look forward to meeting each and every one!
