 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
After many years as an accountant and financial planner, I am now semi-retired. I still provide tax planning and preparation services for a group of long-time clients. However, most of my non-tax-filing-season activities consist of traveling around the southeastern United States with my cameras.

You can check out some of my navy travel, family photos,  and more recent photography at my photo website and blog site.
