Professionally, Ed has the unique credential for a CPA of being a Certified Family Business Advisor. This education and his experience allow him to offer advice to a business owner that differs from most CPA's.

Ed grew up in New Jersey before coming to Virginia to attend college. He lived in Hampton Roads for 27 years before moving to Richmond in 2007.

He is also a member of The Knights of Columbus (Council 11172) at St. Michael's Catholic Church where he attends with his wife and daughter.
Ed is an avid sports enthusiast rooting for his alma mater, Old Dominion University, as well as the New York Giants and New York Yankees. While Ed is thrilled to be living in RVA, you can't change that NJ upbringing.
