As a Director of the Firm, I have in-depth work experience within the public sector of accounting, consulting services, audit, review, and compilation reports, corporate, partnership and high-net-worth individual tax services. My background and involvement in the history of a company’s industry enable me to understand all facets of a client’s business. As a result, I provide practical financial advice that achieves short- and long-term goals while minimizing tax liabilities and ensuring federal, state and local tax compliance.
By day I’m a driven CPA, member of the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. I graduated Magna Cum Lade from Monmouth University and reside in Toms River, NJ.
Aside from my credentials, I consider myself an extrovert, which may come as a surprise, given my occupation, to those of you who do not know me. I like to think that when I take something on I drive 110% into it. I’m not one to leave things on the table unfinished. There is nothing I love more than being a father and husband. I spend most of my free time running around with my wife and little guy. Whether it’s watching cartoons on a Saturday morning, or driving up to Yankee Stadium to watch the first ball game of the season, I’m all in! These days it’s the little things that put a smile on my face.
When I’m outside of the office, I enjoy a round of golf and keeping up with my favorite sports teams. During the spring, I’m recognized on the baseball field holding my position as shortstop assisting my team forward to steal the win!
