In his free time, Steve enjoys racquetball, golf, and studying history, but most of all, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Abbey, their daughter, Anna (6), and son, Joseph (4) at their home in Richardson, TX.
He says he is most proud of qualifying for New York Life’s Council as a new advisor, an honor for the firm’s top advisors, and building high-performance teams that impact lives and help others reach their maximum potential. One of Steve’s favorite quotes is, “Life is service – the one who progresses is the one who gives his fellow men a little more – a little better service.” – E. M. Statler
Bachelor of Science, Cornell University.
