    Steve's over 30-year career began with E.F. Hutton in July of 1982, and he has been successfully guiding his clients through some of the most dramatic market fluctuations ever since. Graduating from Cornell University in 1973, he ran his own small business until his intense interest in "why some families were more successful financially than others" drove him into the financial industry. He has held a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM designation for 30 years and is the senior member of Empire Wealth Management. Steve credits his success to his desire to listen to his clients and develop solutions that enhance their lives.
