About Me

I have been at Westminster since 2013, first as an Adjunct Professor in the School of Business and, starting in August of 2015, as a full-time faculty member teaching Accounting and Economics.  I teach or have taught the following courses at Westminster College: Principles of Accounting I & II, Intermediate Accounting I & II, Accounting Information Systems, Forensic Accounting, Governmental Accounting, Not-for-Profit Accounting, Financial Statement Analysis, Environmental Economics, Principles of Macroeconomics, Principles of Microeconomics and Economic Reasoning.

Outside of Westminster College, I serve on the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) Council and the Schools and Colleges Thought Leadership Committee. I also chair the PICPA's Northwestern and Pittsburgh Local Connection Committees.

In addition to teaching, I am a practicing CPA that provides accounting, consulting, and tax compliance services to businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and individuals.

Having graduated from Westminster College in 1995, I am a firm believer in the value of a business education, based in the liberal arts. This education has served me well throughout my adult life. After graduation, I began my career in public accounting at a mid-sized CPA firm in Pittsburgh. However, I developed an interest in teaching while at Westminster and soon transitioned to teaching social studies, accounting and business courses at the high school level. While teaching high school, I maintained my career in public accounting on a part-time basis. I soon realized that being able to teach what I was practicing in the accounting profession was extremely satisfying to me and provided academic value to my students. My career eventually came full circle in 2013, when I happily took advantage of the opportunity to teach at my alma mater.

I reside in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with my wife, two daughters and two lazy Labrador Retrievers.
