He enjoyed an accomplished career as an investment portfolio manager while still maintaining his enthusiasm for playing basketball, attending Green Bay Packers games, and enjoying the seaside life he had built with his family. He was a brilliant, driven and hilarious young man who will be deeply and profoundly missed.
