WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW:
Personal Mission Statement: Live life in the moment because you never know what to expect tomorrow. Enjoy life and enjoy family and friends now.
Passions after 5pm: Enjoy time with my grandchildren and see them grow.
You’ll never catch me: Visibly upset with anything (if I can help it).
The bottom line: Having been married to my wife for 50 years, it is important to me to enjoy the company of my grandchildren when I can because they will grow up like our 2 daughters did and move on with their lives. I also consider my clients as my friends and enjoy trying to help them solve their problems and not just be here to prepare their taxes. Many of my clients also know my family and if they come see me they can always ask what is going on with the grandkids and that might get me started.
