Alexander Cooke for Juno Beach
Bianca and I met in New York City in what seems like a couple of years ago, however, our 12th wedding anniversary will coincide with this election in March.
Liam joined us in June of 2011. He was born in Pasadena, CA, where I lived and worked at the time. We are licensed foster parents in Florida and we were fortunate to have cared for several young children over the past few years.
Since October 2017, I have lived in Juno Beach on Seaside Lane and
am the President of the HOA.
Wife (Bianca), son (Liam), two dogs (Mimo and Ladybird) and two cats (Stella and Tiger). We have another child on the way in April of 2022.

Born in Greenwich, CT in March of 1977, I grew up in Southport, CT attending Fairfield Country Day School, then New Canaan Country School.
I attended Tabor Academy my first two years of high school where I excelled at ice hockey and lacrosse.
Then I moved out west and graduated from Curtis High School in University Place, Washington, where I was the Captain of the lacrosse team
I returned to the East Coast to attend Fairfield University, in Fairfield, CT where I received my Bachelor's of Science in Finance. This led me to work in investments for a broker/dealer.
I was successful in the investment world, which got me appointed as head of a debt trading desk in my mid-twenties. I transacted mostly in high-yield bonds for the distributer of a nationally known insurance company.
In the mid 2000's, I advanced from the trading desk to active management. I went on to become the youngest director of the firm and managed the assets of their highest net-worth clients. I was promoted to Head of West Coast Operations.
In 2017 I founded my own firm, Optimist Capital, headquarted in Palm Beach Gardens.
My family and I consider ourselves exceptionally lucky to live just above Pelican Lake in the heart of Juno Beach. We have been around the country and seen what can happen to quaint small towns.
Traffic issues only get worse, wildlife and open spaces cease to be, and beaches become unusable due to dumping, poor water quality and trash left behind.
With that in mind, I have stepped up to do everything I can to protect the character of Juno Beach.
