Who or what inspired you to get where you are today?
I could name many who have inspired or mentored me to get where I am today; however, my wife and kids are my greatest motivation who have inspired me to get where I am today and where I plan to get. I am an example to my five-year-old daughter Aubriella, my two-year-old son Ricardo, and my newborn daughter Serenity. I just want to be the best version of me for my wife and kids!
How will you define success as a CPA?
I feel as though the success lies in the accomplishment of achieving a CPA. I've the most respect for all of you who have made it through to becoming CPAs. I honestly feel honored and can not wait to join all of you in this achievement!
What are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about my family and education. I want to give my children everything that I didn't have as a child. I also want to give them the best chance at life through setting them up with the best education possible. My wife and I both go to college and I hope our example inspires our children to one day do the same.
