I am a recovering CPA having recently retired as a partner in a regional CPA firm. After “practicing” for forty years I figured I was as good as I ever was going to be. (However, I still haven’t come to the same conclusion regarding my golf game.) But seriously, much of what I present is based on my business experiences over those years. In my capacity as a partner, I have written many articles and brochures for our client publications. I have written a weekly column in The San Diego Daily Transcript and have also had articles published in the San Diego Business Journal, the North County Times, the Tax Advisor and the Journal of Accountancy.

My BS degree is from Santa Clara University and my Masters degree in finance is from San Diego State University. Currently, I am on the Board of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater San Diego, having  completed my terms as Board Chair, as well as its Foundation. I previously chaired the Community Services Commission of the City of Escondido. I am a past president of the Escondido Sunrise Rotary Club.

Besides my formal training and education, I am a student of history and have a love of politics. These credentials have given me an understanding of both economics and human nature. This understanding has propelled all of the story lines in my novels. All my novels are available in paperback or as e-books on Amazon, Barnes and Noble online, and the iBookstore.
