About Me

I am a native of Naples, Florida, that decided to move back after attending New York University School of Law to earn my LL.M. in Tax. I grew up in the area and enjoy golf and tennis (which I played at the college level) and the work that I do. I consider myself fortunate to be able to live in such a great place (there is a reason so many people retire here) doing a job that I find enjoyable.


I work mainly with independent physicians because healthcare is such a large industry in the area and I worked as a staff accountant for a local accounting firm that specialized in physician practices.
