About

I am an associate professor of accounting.  I am a CPA and have an MBA from the University of Connecticut. 

I have published various articles over the years.  In 2012, one article was published in the Connecticut CPA Journal and republished by the New Hampshire CPA Journal.  One article is currently in progress with Abbas Nadim concerning the benefits of annual audits to small businesses.  In 2009 another article was published regarding profit sharing plans in the International Business and Economics Research Journal. 

I have always practiced public accounting while teaching at the University and I maintain currency in the field each year.  I am also a partner in a peer reviewed firm.
