Born and raised in the streets of New York City, I graduated from Rice High School in Harlem and than graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice from John Jay College. As a child, I was thought to serve and respect others. With a passion for serving and helping people, I joined the United States Marine Corps in 1978 in order to keep the tradition of protecting families freedom. After my service in the USMC, I started working in Law Enforcement and upon Retirement, I then transitioned into Financial Services in 1995. I associated myself with Primerica Financial Services helping clients with Term Life Insurance and Investments.
In the year 2000, I opened my own Small Business in Hospitality, which grew from 14 employees to 250 employees which allowed me to develop a great Clientele throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Due to the 2008 economic collapse, I was forced to close our business. This made me realize that helping families protect their financial future was very important and where I needed to be.
I partnered up with First Financial Security as an Area Marketing Director and in 2012. I developed and translated brochures in Spanish and was given the opportunity to launch a division of First Financial Security in Puerto Rico, with Total Success.
In 2017, I decided to start our own agency, LifeAnswers Financial Group in Tampa, Florida and associated our Firm with Partners Advantage a Gallagher Financial Group. Our Mission is too Educated, Inform and Empower our Clients and Financial Professionals with the latest and greatest financial solutions available. We have succeed in becoming a leader in the Industry by achieving our Vision in eliminating clients debt using their own money (Your Family Bank), to restructuring clients retirement and implementing tax free lifetime income solution (Stonewood Financial). Our programs are helping families achieve the American Dream. I have continued to provide the same dedication to all my Clients and Business Partners with hands-on experience and keeping up with how technology affects the insurance industry. Staying ahead of the Industry’s frequent changes, is my sixth sense.
I have represented many Clients for over 27 years and continue to grow and serve our communities.
