Do You Ever Wonder

I wear many hats including company CEO, Board Chair of the combat veteran charity Heroes To Heroes Foundation and, the creator and host of the Do You Ever Wonder podcast.

My career has touched many positions and fields. After business school, I became a bond analyst, bond trader, and equity trader at some of the biggest firms on Wall Street.

I then started a commercial mortgage company, selling our paper to the CMBS market. That all ended when Lehman Brothers failed, and then along with my wife started the title insurance company Hallmark Abstract Service.

16-years after the financial crisis, here we are!
