CPA in the state of North Carolina, 2000


This is my first semester here at Appalachian State University. Prior to teaching at Appalachian, I was a part time lecturer while running my own CPA firm in Wilmington NC.  With the firm I specialized in tax, small business consulting.  So whenever possible I try to bring in real world examples into the classroom to make things a bit more interesting.  In my spare time my wife and I enjoy being outside, cooking, and taking little adventures to see where the day will bring us.
