Tell us about your life outside of work (family/pets/sports/activities/interests/hobbies)
Spending time with my wife and daughter, visiting amusement parks, zoos, museums and space exploration centers, have an old cat, practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), watching MMA fights, target shooting at the range, listening to various podcasts.
What is your favorite part of working at the firm?
I’ve worked at several different CPA firms – from a very small one man shop to national Top 10 firms. HN is the right size for me at this point in my career – not too big where one can get lost in the mix and not too small where you don’t have the proper resources.
