Outside of the office!
Our resident numismatist (you just learned a new word, didn’t you? It means coin collector…) and art aficionado, Steve brings a witty, intelligent, and perpetually cheery demeanor to the team at Financial Voyages. He’s a wonderful financial advisor, but would make a terrible restaurant waiter. What did you order again? Steve is our resident tech guru and enjoys all things that bring efficiency to our office and clients. His favorite app is: “Sign Easy” because he can sign documents away from his laptop.
If Steve wasn’t in the financial industry, his dream job would be being a US National Park Forest Ranger. Steve spends any free moment he can hiking, exploring, and spending time in nature – and he prefers the mountains to the beach. It comes as no surprise that Steve’s favorite smell is fresh pine and the fallen leaves.
Keeping in line with the “fall” theme, Steve’s favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. What is not to love about time with family, amazing food, and beautiful fall scenery?
Don’t be fooled by Steve’s easy-going demeanor though, he’s a loud, proud Michigan fan and bleeds maize and blue. On the off seasons for Michigan, you’ll find him rooting for other Philadelphia teams like the Eagles or Phillies.
