He has worked in audit, consulting, financial, and managerial accounting positions for Deloite, International Paper, and SONY.  He is a CPA and CMA.

He is originally from New York, where he still has some strong ties, including his daughter Kathleen, son-in-law Russell and two wonderful granddaughters, Natasha and Hudson (named after the beautiful river where the family boats all summer). His latest degree is from Virginia Tech, where daughter numero two, Whitney Cinderella, lives (Virginia) with her husband Todd, Mr. Perfect (Harrison, first grandchild), Miss Cora Chelsea, and Gabe, all rounding out the collection of delightful grandchildren.  There’s an equal number of doggies in the overall clan, who as yet do not get to enjoy the couple of weeks that the two-leggers do at Pawleys Island each summer.  Dave and Lynne (his lovely N.Y. wife, of more than several years) are very happy in Aiken, only miss the snow hypothetically, and do whatever Topper says.
