I grew up in Massachusetts where my parents still run a plastics manufacturing company (www.Fluorolite.com). That exposure to entrepreneurial parents and a family business formed many of my passions and guides my efforts as an attorney.
I attended Boston College for undergraduate study and majored in accounting. Spending a year-abroad living and studying business in Italy gave me an invaluable exposure to international business issues and methodologies.
After graduation I moved to San Diego, California where I passed the California CPA exam (all 4-parts on first attempt) and began working in a CPA rm in beautiful downtown San Diego. There I was privileged to assist many clients running businesses of varying sizes and helped them with financial and tax related issues.
While in San Diego I met my wife, Dana Pink (née Gianelli), and together we ended up working in Malawi, Africa. After leaving Africa, we went to Massachusetts where I worked as an executive for my parents' business and started law school through Concord Law School. I passed the CA Bar Exam (on my first attempt) and now, my family of 6 is happily settled in sunny California.
