Where are you from?


Why are you involved with Six Feet Over?

I have seen the emotional effects of suicide personally with friends and family, and SFO does great work to help prevent and raise awareness. Sometimes people just need a friend to talk to, I like that our organization can be that friend.

What inspires you?

Meditation, and staying ahead.

What is your dream?

My accounting firm to become the next PWC (Price Waterhouse Coopers) and to take over the world.

Who is your hero?

My parents.

What really burns your biscuit?

Wall Street, it’s full of criminals.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Tai Chi & meditate.

Your favorite quote:

Always Forward, Never Backwards. Forward Always. – Unknown

One thing that is quirky about you:

I always count people when I am in public places, I have to know how many people are in my vicinity at all times. Unless I’m at a concert or festival, because that’s impossible to count. I’ve tried.

If given the chance to do anything for a month, without financial limitations, what would you do?

Travel the world.

Toilet paper under/over?

They are both right.

I can’t live without …


I’m most proud of being…

An accountant and having a family firm.

I thrive when…

I am under pressure.

Your favorite holiday:

New York
