John focuses his financial planning practice on helping couples plan, consolidate, and manage their retirement money.

While attending Bentley University, he landed an internship at a local top-tier financial planning office where his passion for helping others with retirement planning really grew. Upon graduation in 2005, John started his financial planning practice, joining the E3 team in 2013.

John and his wife, Susan, are avid Boston Red Sox fans and were married at Fenway Park in 2012! They currently live in Arlington with their black cat, Salem.
