What do you enjoy most about your job?

This is the most collaborative environment I’ve ever experienced. With no silos, we cover a lot of ground across teams and disciplines to develop client success, and the ability to flex across different concepts only strengthens our team. We accentuate our team members’ strengths and give them the opportunity to develop new skills.

What unique personal skills make you great at your role at TwinFocus?

With a diverse background in public accounting and investment management, I evaluate potential solutions from many angles and uncover new challenges. I dive deep into technical analysis to understand how investment exposures may perform under different environments. Finally, I take pride in my relentless work ethic and pursuit of the best possible client outcomes.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I enjoy being outdoors, whether it’s cycling, at the beach or searing a big ribeye on the grill. I follow quite a few sports, including hockey, football, lacrosse and auto racing. I enjoy traveling with my family, exploring new areas and connecting with what locals enjoy most.
