When did you decide to go into the accounting field and why?
I used to work Night Audit at a hotel before I went to college, and I liked the nightly challenge of going through all the nights’ revenue and making sure everything was correct.
What do you like best about what you do?
I enjoy the challenge of trying to solve a puzzle. Accounting is often trying to solve a puzzle, while not knowing what the exact ending picture is.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am also a huge movie buff and enjoy playing video games on occasion. When time permits, I also enjoy reading science fiction books.
Where is your favorite place to travel?
My favorite place to travel would be Richland, Michigan as my brother and his family live there. He has three young girls all under seven, and spending time with them is one of my favorite things to do.
Where would you like to vacation that you have not and why?
If I could travel anywhere in the world, it would likely be to Rome. I have always been a huge fan of the history and culture, and one of my favorite college classes was Art History. It would be incredible to be able to see some of the art, architecture, and history in person.
What is your favorite type of music (Pop, Rock, Country or Classic)?
My musical tastes vary as frequently as the weather, and while I enjoy all types of music (except country), classic rock is my all-time favorite genre. The Who, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd are some of my favorite artists.
What is your favorite sports team?
My favorite sports team is the Detroit Lions. I have been a fan for well over twenty years, and no matter how many times they break my heart, I keep coming back for more.
What is something about yourself that would surprise us?
While I am very outgoing and talkative now, when I was younger I was painfully shy.
What is on your bucket list?
I hope to one day be able to run a half-marathon (a full marathon just seems unrealistic)
What is your favorite movie?
I am a huge Marvel fan, so I am not sure if I could narrow it down to one. If I had to choose, it would probably be Captain America: The Winter Soldier
If you could have dinner with one person in history, who would it be?
Barry Sanders is my all-time favorite athlete, and I think he would be a fascinating person to talk to.
What was your first car?
A silver 1997 Dodge Intrepid. It was only a few years old when I got it, so to me it felt like the nicest car in the world.
