I have been involved with the markets since 10th grade. I became a licensed series 7 broker in 1991. I have worked for some of the most successful firms on wall street. Gruntal & Co, Oppenheimer & Co, and Charles Schwab just to name a few. My expertise is in investment banking however I have worked in almost every area of the brokerage business and therefore have a thorough knowledge of finance, economics, money, trading, corporate finance, personal financial management, retirement planning and wealth management & accumulation. I am lucky to have been involved with some of the most successful deals of the past 2 decades including Starbucks, Yahoo, Ebay, BET, King World Entertainment, Amazon and countless others at there inceptions through either IPO's, secondary offerings and private placements. I have raised over $500 million in my career for IPO's, Private Placements and Private Accounts. I am excited about teaching now that I have retired from my business. It allows me to stay engaged and give something back as I feel tremendously blessed to have had my professional experience. I just hope to be able to help people grasp the complexities of finance to enrich their lives for the better.
