Who or what has been the strongest influence on your career and why?

My father. He, along with our entire family, left Saigon in the mid-70’s. He came to the U.S. knowing no english and having no money. He went through 10 years of night-college all while working various full-day jobs and cared for his young family and is now a successful accountant.

What is the best advice you have received and who was it from?

Ed Constantino, Arthur Andersen partner told me when I was an intern that success is 80% “can do” attitude and 20% skills. As long as people had the ambition, will and desire to see something to success, the rest can be learned along the way.
