Michael started his career with Northwestern Mutual-Chicago as a Financial Representative while attending Loyola University Chicago. While finishing his degree in Finance & Economics, Michael had the opportunity to grow his practice and learn the fundamentals of the financial security business.

Upon graduating, Michael was excited to enter this career full-time. Since then, he has obtained new licenses and undergone continuous training to allow him to help his clients in a greater capacity and to keep his focus on what's truly important: helping his clients reach their goals over their lifetime.

Michael has also had the opportunity to mentor, train and develop new College Representatives, serving as one of the College Unit Directors for Northwestern Mutual-Chicago, formerly the McTigue Financial Group.

He then took on the role of Growth and Development Director, where he was able to continue his passion for mentoring others as he began to work with new full-time advisors.

In 2017, Michael was named Managing Director. He leads a team of full-time financial representatives and currently spends about half of his time recruiting, mentoring and developing his team of advisors.
