Buffalo Township Auditor
"I'm a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh College of Business Administration with a degree in Accounting and Administration of Justice. I'm also an Eagle Scout with a passion for the great outdoors and a history of volunteering with non-profit organizations such as Key Club Kiwanis, National Honors Society, and local Food Banks. I'm currently employed as the Controller for one of the largest privately-held transportation companies operating in the greater Pittsburgh area. During daily operations, I prepare and analyze financial statements to make managerial decisions and I work regularly with both government and external auditors. I believe this diverse background makes me a strong candidate for this position. Aside from working in accounting, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, canoeing, playing basketball, and working on my real estate investments. Through this position, my intent is to continue to professionally develop my skills while doing my part for the community. I look forward to protecting the citizens of Buffalo Township from any fraud, waste, abuse, or mismanagement of their hard-earned tax dollars."
