What’s one thing few people know about you?

I have memorized every scene from the Seinfeld television series. Like many others, I consider it the best sitcom ever made. Whenever time permits, I like to work on the Penske file (hopefully it gets done one day).

What do you consider the most important characteristic of your profession?

Most people think that the ability to “crunch the numbers” is the most important skill an accountant needs; not true. In order to best serve your clients, a good accountant needs strong communication skills. I like to sit down with my clients and discuss their business and just catch-up on life in general. I enjoy listening to my clients and helping them deal with the Canada Revenue Agency, bankers, lawyers, and investors to reduce their stress so that they can focus more time on running their business.
