I grew up in Wilmington, Delaware through high school and graduated from U.S.F in Tampa in 1978. My family started coming to Naples for holidays and summers in 1967, when Naples was quite different. My wife and I moved to Naples in 1985 when I accepted a job with Coopers and Lybrand, a large national accounting firm. I have primarily worked in public accounting the bulk of my career with a strong background in auditing and accounting. I went off on my own as a sole practitioner in 2004. I have three wonderful sons that all attended St Johns as children and my youngest son was baptized at St Johns in 1995. I started attending St Johns regularly in 2011 and it has been a life changing event.
