The Man Behind the Tax Return:


Raised in Northern California, I am a die-hard San Francisco Giants fan. On the weekend, you can catch me on the golf course, watching re-runs of my favorite TV show MASH, and spending time with my family. My favorite ice cream flavor is Baskin Robbins Jamoca Almond Fudge.
