Inside the Mind Of:

What line of The Rea Way describes you the best? Never stop learning. Have fun. Enjoy the journey...

What does “A Brighter Way” mean to you? A Brighter Way is learning and growing with the end goal of sharing any and all knowledge gained with those around you. Lifting and encouraging those around you should always be a priority.

What do you consider is your “brightest” quality? Maintaining a positive attitude and looking for the positives in any situation.

What “bright idea” do you find yourself sharing over and over? Everyone you interact with is just a person just like you. We all deserve respect and patience.

Just for Fun:

What did 10-year-old you want to be when you grew up? Three-way tie: rap artist, professional skateboarder / BMX Rider, or a writer.

What profession would you choose if you didn’t go into accounting? Potentially the medical field. I place serving others as a high priority and my father is a pharmacist. I may have followed in his footsteps.

What makes you get out of bed every day? My wife and kids push me to be my best every day. Other than that, the fact that there are always opportunities to teach and be taught.

I am an accounting processional who prioritizes relationship building and implementing work efficiencies.
