He is also a member of the XY Planning Network (XYPN), the leading organization of fee-only financial advisors who specialize in helping members of Gen X and Gen Y.

 

Chris is a family man at heart. He and his wife Lindsay welcomed their daughter Avery Grace to the world in 2016, and son Landon in 2019; things have never been the same since.

As a native of Connecticut, which is it: Mets or Yankees?

Yankees, for sure! My father is a Yankees fan. His father was too. It’s one of those generational things. It’s in our blood.

How’s parenthood working for you so far?

Since Avery Grace was born, Lindsay and I have experienced more love than we ever thought possible. Our parents were great role models, giving themselves to us in a million different ways when we were growing up. Seeing their example has helped us as we strive to be good parents ourselves. Thankfully, Avery makes it easy. It’s fascinating to watch her personality emerge. She loves to be outside, running and exploring in the woods behind the house. She loves to read, especially stories about animals. Her curiosity knows no bounds. Even a passing airplane can be remarkable to her.

How’s “Grampy” (Larry Annello) holding up?

Avery is the boss of him. She’ll take my dad’s hand and tell him it’s time to go outside. They’ll go for walks. The joy she brings to our entire family is great to witness and be a part of. With my brother and his wife recently having their first child, James, we doubled the fun in our little clan. Now, with the birth of our son Landon in 2019, Grampy has triple the joy.
