    Other Interests

    • What is your favorite way to spend time? I love to play golf, cycle, hike and read in my free time as well as travel with my wife, Kristy.
    • What did you want to be when you grew up? TGrowing up I wanted to be a meteorologist, and while that wasn't the path I chose, I remain a "closet storm chaser."
    • What was your favorite vacation? Favorite vacations include trips to Scotland, France, and the Mediterranean. But more than anything, I cherish annual lake trips with extended family to Crystal Lake in Northern Michigan.

What attracted you
to FocusCFO?

In my consulting, I've really enjoyed working with smaller, mostly private companies. They have an entrepreneurial energy and agility that I've missed, and my larger-company experience can be of real value in helping these businesses scale and grow.
