Find a job you like and you'll never work a day in your life.
For me, this happened when I became interested in teaching while at DePaul. I returned to school in order to obtain a PhD. I've been at Bradley since I earned my degree.

Current Interests I teach Bradley's auditing and accounting information systems classes. In terms of research, I am currently interested in the uses of the Internet to enhance accounting and education, and internal auditor outsourcing.
