Favorite Food:

I enjoy cooking and trying new things. My favorite food is homemade lasagna which was a passed down recipe from my mom. I’m not the only one who likes it, I take requests for it for holidays.

Best piece of financial advice I received:

Don’t be the guy with a big hat and no cattle.

Favorite Quote:

Sometimes later, becomes never

If I could meet anyone, past or present, it would be:

My Nunno. I remember when he passed away and my cousin and I were exposed to his wealth and estate. He was a school teacher and principal and he was able to achieve wealth by diligent saving. This started my interest in personal finances.

Favorite book: 

Shoe Dog. It is an autobiography by Phil Knight who started Nike. He has a really interesting life story. It shows what risk taking and hard work can achieve.

What motivates me:

Showing my children a strong work ethic and values.

Favorite holiday:

Christmas Eve. My wife and I were born two hours apart on Christmas Eve. She was born in the Washington Hospital and I was born in St. Clair Hospital. This has turned into a really big day in our house with our young children and our birthdays. My oldest son did not understand why his parents were opening gifts a day earlier than the big day and he wasn’t allowed to open anything.

Something on my bucket list:

One of my colleagues at Deloitte told me that she would go with her family on road trips every Summer and they visited all 50 states together. I have a high regard for that person and her values and how she handled herself. From that moment, I knew when I had a family we needed to do those things. I’m always looking for ideas for things to do in each state. So please give me ideas.

Place I’d most like to visit:

Hawaii.

My biggest accomplishment:

Raising my two children with my wife.
