Tax partner, Metro Park office managing partner at RSM Global


What you do: I am the tax service coordinator for corporate and partnership clients of RSM’s Metro Park New Jersey office and the lead tax partner for several major public clients. I focus my practice on large, multinational consolidated corporate and partnership business entities in the industrial products, technology and life sciences industries.

Old gig: I served for 12 years as a tax services coordinator for a Big Four accounting firm, where I oversaw New Jersey tax operations.

School Ties: Graduated from St. Peter’s College with a bachelor’s degree in accounting.

Hometown: Westfield


Favorite Place at the Shore: Manasquan

When you brag about Jersey to people from out of state, you say: Spend time 20 miles outside the Newark airport. Most visitors only see what is around the airport and don’t get to enjoy the “Garden State,” the Shore, horse country or the Pine Barrens.

Bruce, Bon Jovi, Whitney or Sinatra: Bruce

Yankees, Mets, Jets or Giants: Yankees


What you wanted to be when you were 6: I have had a job since I was 11. I always wanted to be in business.

Dream vacation: Anything that involves food and a beach.

Your passion: Hockey and baseball. I still play ice hockey once a week and enjoy every pitch of a baseball game.

Something about you that your co-workers don’t know: I’m a renaissance man. I can make crème brûlée, fly fish, fix things in the house, do your taxes and I’m a triathlete.
