Spouse/kids/pets – I have been married to my wife Amy for 10 years. We have one son who is 6 years old named David and a little Chihuahua mix pup named Lola. My wife is a dyslexia therapist (CALT) for WFISD and my son is in the 1st grade. We love hiking, camping, cycling and we’re always up for an adventure.
Favorite food – Pizza with pesto, ricotta, and mozzarella.

Accomplishments you are most proud of – Coming to United States of America was one of the biggest personal accomplishments I ever made. I was among 20 selected Exchange students who had a privilege to come and study in the United States at the collegiate level. On a professional level, obtaining a CPA license was the best career accomplishment I ever made.
On your bucket list – Taking our son to my hometown and giving him the “grand tour” of family, sites, and share stories along the way of how I grew up.
Most daring thing you’ve ever done – Coming to United States at the age of 19. If being in a foreign land, far away from home and not knowing anyone wasn’t hard enough, the airport lost my luggage and I had nothing but the clothes on my back and the money in my pocket.
Favorite thing about your career – Making complex things appear simple. Finding “best fit” solutions for our clients’ specific needs or situations.
