I decided to become a CPA because:
my dad was a corporate finance officer who never
had the opportunity or education to become a CPA. I wanted to be a CPA before
I knew what one was.
My favorite television show is:
anything on the Military Channel.
My all-time favorite movie is:
any baseball movie.
The best vacation I ever took was:
our Block Island boating at Payne's Dock.
If I could have dinner with any celebrity, living or dead, I would choose:
Babe Ruth.
If I weren't a CPA, I would be a:
professional bowler.
Something people would be surprised to know about me is:
I'm a United States Air Force
Vietnam-era veteran who was a crew chief on F-4 Phantom fighter jets.
What I love most about Connecticut is:
being close to the water.
What I love most about being a CPA is:
working, and caring, for my clients for more than 30 years.
So far, the highlight of my career has been:
when my wife passed the CPA Exam in March
2011 and our son declared accounting as his major at Bentley University.
The best advice I ever received was:
"You're only as good as your last at-bat."
