Michael had the same dream as everyone else when he was a boy: be a superhero. Unfortunately, there are no courses in leaping tall buildings in a single bound; luckily, Michael found another way to secure the future of so many.
Beginnings & Education
He was born in Memphis, Tennessee, but his father’s military service gave him the chance to grow up in many places. Eventually, Michael’s family settled in Central Florida in 1973, where he later attended the University of Central Florida and graduated with a degree in Management in 1989.
While earning his degree, Michael worked to put himself through school. Before graduating, he entered the world of financial services and found his way of being a superhero. He discovered that, as a financial advisor, he could save many from fearing the future by helping them establish financial stability. In 1994, he completed post-graduate work at the College of Financial Planning as well as the Provident Mutual Estate and Business planning school.
He has over 27 years of experience helping people retire with the lifestyle they desire, creating secure and effective plans for those entering retirement and those already retired.
Michael works with the Foundation for Financial Education, a non-profit 501(c)3 with the mission of eliminating financial illiteracy. He speaks at seminars for businesses, municipalities, corporations, employees, non-profit organizations, and government agencies providing financial education. He has spoken to local organizations like the City of St. Cloud as well as national organizations such as the United States Secret Service.
Michael is also an active member of his community and has served on the Central Florida Estate Planning Council. Outside of the office, Michael is an avid cyclist, enjoys reading, and can be found grilling hamburgers at the concession stand for his kids’ football or lacrosse games. Over the years, he has also coached several Pop Warner football, flag football, and soccer teams, and he was a member of the 2008 coaching staff of the year in Winter Springs Pop Warner.
Michael founded Silver Street Financial to help his clients go through their lives with peace of mind. The financial arena has a lot of information and can be very confusing, difficult to navigate, and even incredibly scary for those unfamiliar with it. It is the goal of Michael and Silver Street Financial to make the journey as smooth as possible by navigating the hostile environment for you.
Don’t try to do it alone. Let Silver Street Financial help you get financial peace of mind.
