I am a licensed CPA and Assistant Professor at Saint Peter's University where I teach accounting, taxation, Excel, and more. I formerly worked in public accounting at Deloitte, developing a tax-technology skillset while building custom tax compliance and planning tools for clients.

My research interests include career and technical education (CTE) policy and programming, public school funding, and issues related to local property tax.

I love to write and have two separate blogs for this passion. I research, analyze, and write technical pieces for my fiscal literacy blog at CivicParent.org. I also have a travel blog at SpeckledNotebook.com where I blog for fun, centered around life experiences.
