About Me

I am a Finance and Accountimg professional with over a decade of experience across multiple industries including Manufacturing, Comsumer Packaged Goods, and Hospitality. I have degrees in Economics and Finance, and most recently completed my MBA at the Hough Graduate School of Business at the University of Florida.

My expertise is in forecasting and budgeting, process improvements, and executive reporting. I am passionate about helping people to learn, and understand that everyone learns in different ways and at different paces. That’s why I do what I do...  I understand that numbers can be intimidating to understand, and that it’s hard to ask questions without judgment. If you’re looking for someone to take their time, break down the process or concepts, and draw parallels between theory and real world execution, I can assist you in that journey.

My mission it to create $1B in net worth by helping 1,000 business owners grow their businesses to more than $1M in value.

Personally, I’ve been married to my wife for just over a decade and we have a bright, silly, handsome young son. I enjoy reading, writing, and teaching.

No business can truly operate for long without some semblance of a plan. Try taking your latest app idea to the angels of Silicon Valley promising your potential investors that they’ll get their money back “eventually”. Ultimately, we’re forced to admit that plan…

Game of Data - A Story of Muffins and Metrics

I’ll begin this post with a confession: I don’t have the best dietary habits (though I swear I’m working on it). My office has a self-service cantina stocked with a variety of foods including candy bars, soft drinks, frozen meals, and, stored in a round wicker basket, the most addictive muffins on the planet. Many mornings, despite my best efforts, I cannot fight the urge to grab my $1.80 muffin from downstairs before plowing into the depths of spreadsheets and ad hoc reports. It’s an addiction, but at least it’s not crack… right? Addictions and self-control aside, nothing frustrates me more than when that little wicker basket is empty when I’ve already committed to quenching my muffin madness. What’s even more frustrating is when I see the vendor’s truck parked outside the loading dock and the rep inside the cantina early in the morning only for the muffin basket to be empty… again. I should take that as sign that it’s time for me to squash my sweet tooth once and for all, but I can…
