I have been a resident of Southern Indiana for most of my life. I was born in New Albany and raised in Sellersburg. I graduated from Silver Creek High School in 1985. After graduation from Silver Creek, I attended Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1989.

The next fifteen years were spent working as an engineer in various manufacturing roles including Manufacturing Engineer, Process Engineer and Manufacturing/Plant Manager. The entrepreneurial bug first bit in 1999 when I started my first business in Henryville IN: Goodfellas Pizza. After building that business into a successful enterprise, Goodfellas Pizza was sold in 2002. I started my first accounting business i n 2004, and have owned and operated an accounting firm since then.

With all the professional and business success, it was not until I met my wife, Angie, in 2000 that I felt my life really started. Angie and I have been married nearly twenty years, and enjoyed raising our two children, Garet (15) and Emilia (9) in the friendly confines of Sellersburg and Southern Indiana.

We have called Sellersburg home for the last seven years.
