I was born and raised in Ohio. I have also lived in Texas, New Jersey, and now Atlanta. I attended Ohio State University and earned my undergraduate degree majoring in Accounting. Later, I earned an MBA, majoring in finance, from New York University.
I started my career in public accounting and have held senior finance and accounting positions. Over the last 15+ years I have been exclusively at private equity owned companies, as a CFO, an interim CFO or engaged for special project work. Industry experience includes consumer products (candy and sporting goods) and manufacturing.
I enjoy spending time with my wife; cooking, traveling, going to the gym and seeing shows at the Fox Theater.
