Uncompromising Work and an Up-Front Nature from Experienced Financial Professionals

About Ross

Ross is a 25-year veteran of the financial services industry and a Certified Financial Planner PractitionerTM for over a decade. He has truly enjoyed seeing the creation and maintenance of comfortable retirements for thousands of people and has spent the last half of his career specializing in the improvement of the financial literacy of municipal employees.

Ross holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the State University of New York College at Geneseo.  Having majored in Communication with a Minor in Finance, Ross is one of those people who improves upon his education (and that of others) every day by effectively communicating about people's finances.

He has produced over 2,000 comprehensive personal financial plans and their related recommendations. He is one of those special, highly experienced persons who truly enjoys getting the calculator out, doing the math, and helping people allocate assets within their portfolios as efficiently as possible.

Aside from loving the numbers and research involved with the financial services industry, Ross is a sports fan, plays tennis from time to time, is beloved by almost every dog in the world (this happens when one carries treats), and likes trying new restaurants (nothing spicy).

Recommendations and portfolio management are as varied from one client to the next in as much as each person is completely different.

Practices & Beliefs

By putting our customers first and removing self-interest, Full Picture Financial really CLICKs with clients:



Not just listening but "hearing" the client and making recommendations aligned with their specific situation and designing personal strategies together from the ground up.


Leveraging Technology

This speeds along the analysis process and helps provide quick feedback while increasing accuracy and providing access for the client to view accounts and make changes at will.



There is no compensation from products or joint marketing with organizations making us beholden to a product which could compromise the integrity of solutions presented to you.



Not only is the education individual to your current situation and needs, recommendations and portfolio management are as varied from one client to the next in as much as each person is completely different.



Always in motion, we will never rest on our laurels and accept common methods to be the only way of accomplishing your goals. As your portfolio will constantly be tended to, the information you receive and choices presented will be current and fresh.

A Comprehensive Approach To Financial Management:

While we can help with portfolio management or general consultation, we prefer to take a more Comprehensive approach and move beyond the transactional base you may have established elsewhere. We provide a full range of advisory services for less affect on your bottom line than traditional advisors may charge to handle one specific area.

Availability & Timeliness:

We believe in Availability and Timeliness ... Our advisors have no need to manage hundreds of clients or shoehorn meetings into 1-hour sessions every few months. We return all calls within 24 hours and are typically able to make face-to-face meetings within 72 hours or less.
