Grow The Pie.

Pie

I like math. I love to balance my checkbook, and as my clients know, I invoice on the regular. I like accounting and P&Ls. Straight lines, formulas that work.

My 2019 Resolutions: Sobritey + Meditation = Clarity

For my annual resolution, I always pick a word. And that word represents something I need to replenish; something I’d like to have more on in my life.
