Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
I grew up in the inner-city and basketball was my primary concern. I did not experience much of the world beyond my family, close friends, and my neighborhood.
I attended Ball State University and studied accounting for my undergraduate and graduate studies.
I launched my career at PwC in the Indianapolis office.
I relocated to the PwC Chicago office to take advantage of an opportunity on a global banking client.

Day to Day

My days are usually different; however, an underpinning in each day is what I'll call "The three A's": an Assessment of the past, an Analysis of the present, and Anticipation of the future.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

There aren't many results that are guaranteed. I try to focus on applying certain behaviors that give me the best chance for positive results. I won't pretend to have the formula for success, but working hard, continuous learning, being resourceful, and being bold usually produce positive results.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

Get started! Be sure to work hard, treat people well, and be inquisitive. Take advantage of every opportunity. You will experience failures along the way; don't let them discourage you and be sure to learn from them.
