  • My Story

    Christopher is a practicing accountant and attorney and has been admitted to the bar in Florida, The District of Columbia, the U.S. Tax Court, as well as other federal jurisdictions. When Christopher is not teaching or grading work, he enjoys spending time with his daughter Tabitha, and wife Laura. During his leisure time, he is either training horses or traveling in the family boat or motorhome.

    Favorite Course to Teach:

    Fraud Examinations, because I can heed Gods calling by invoking biblically consistent values all while challenges students to exit their comfort zones with society.
