My wife (Michelle) and I have lived in our current home at 3rd and Delancey for 6 years. Prior to that we lived at 4th and Walnut for 5 years so I’m very familiar with the area. I am currently a Director for a company in Wilmington, DE that specializes in handling mass tort settlements. I manage many of the trust funds that were established as compensation for claimants who fell ill due to their exposure to asbestos. I have degree in economics from Penn State University and an MBA from Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh.
