What is your favorite part of your job?
"I’ve been doing accounting for about 35 years, so I must enjoy something about it. At the SCGA the most enjoyable part of my job is getting to work with an awesome group of people. I've also learned to play golf, and love the game, which is something that will last forever."
What is your dream golf foursome?
"Justin Timberlake (awesome golfer), Kurt Warner (awesome guy), Bill Lawrence (funniest & nicest guy) and me. Heaven. And in my dream I would be able to keep up with all of them."
