Q. What is it about accounting and consulting that first drew your interest?
The opportunity to work with many great people in a variety of industries, and help them transition their companies from good  to great.
Q. Describe your most memorable moment at Armanino.
We shut down for a day each spring and everyone donates time at a local charity. A day working at a food pantry has stuck with me as a reminder of how much we have and how much we can help others.
Q. Describe your work style.
Open, collaborative. Driven to find the best solution. I enjoy discussing problems and working with others to develop solutions to problems.
Q. Make a prediction, describe your vision of the business future.
Business will continue to embrace the cloud. The ability to work from where you are will continue to increase. Employees will become more about getting the job done and less about when and where.
Q. What is the toughest business decision you have ever made?
Recommending the company I was working for declare bankruptcy and laying myself off in the process.
