For the last 42 years, I have maintained an active tax preparation practice, providing tax advisory services including multi-generational estate planning, portfolio coordination of gains and losses, business succession planning, and non-qualified retirement income planning.

I became involved in personal tax planning upon graduating from Old Dominion University with a BS in accounting. In the early years from 1978 to 1981, I concentrated solely in the tax planning arena.

In addition to my passion for tax planning, I have two children and three grandchildren that keep me busy and I am actively involved in the community. In my free time, I enjoy ballroom dancing and golf.
