I’m a certified public accountant (CPA) and provide auditing and accounting advisory services to privately-owned companies across different industries. I’m also on the Georgia State Board of Accountancy where I, along with six other board members, oversee and regulate CPAs and CPA firms licensed in the state of Georgia. I enjoy traveling, hiking, biking, golfing, boating, and University of Georgia sporting events. Go Dawgs!

Who Am I?

The last TV Show I watched was VEEP.

In 10 years my dream job would be Managing Partner of Frazier & Deeter or a Professional Golfer (which is certainly a dream!).
I’m co-founder and chief of staff of LYTEHouse (Lifting Youth Through Enrichment), a student organization that I started with three of my Morehouse brothers. LYTEHouse helps freshman students in their transition from high school to college by pairing them with upperclassmen with their same major. I love being able to build community on campus, while advancing personal and academic achievement. After graduation, I want to become a political journalist and share the stories of communities and people who are disadvantaged.
