After graduating from BYU, I obtained my CPA license through the state of Colorado (License# 27335), and then started the Ph.D. program in accounting at the University of Michigan, and finished in 2013. After finishing my Ph.D. at Michigan, I worked for three years as an assistant professor at The Ohio State University. As of July 2016, I am an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
I live with my wife of eleven years, Stacey, and four children, aged 11 and 9, and 6 and 5.
I enjoy cycling, tried running once, hiking, making things out of wood and other materials , spending time with my family, collecting tax-related items (on display at http://www.thetaxmuseum.org), and listening to audiobooks.
