On a Lighter Note

What was your first job?
My first accounting job was for a pizza manufacturing company near Mt. Perry, Ohio. As the controller, I used those large black ledger books and thirteen-column pads. Everything was done manually, including the financial statements. Later, I converted the company’s accounting processes to a computerized IBM package.

What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
My proudest accomplishment is my family. My two children and my wife of many years make me the man I am today.

Where is an exciting place you have visited or an incredible view you have seen?
My wife, Lori, and I visited Kenya several years back. It was stunning to see the wildlife and beauty in Africa.
