He completed his CPA examinations and licensure in the state of Louisiana in June of 2018 and is now the fourth CPA within two generations of his family. He began his career at a large mid-size firm in Shreveport, LA, where he focused on governmental, not-for-profit, and financial institution audits. His current areas of practice include audits of financial statements for local governments, not-for-profit organizations, and employee benefit plans.

A native of Tyler, AJ graduated from Grace Community School and completed his undergraduate and graduate degrees at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA. In the summers during his college years, AJ was on staff at Pine Cove Christian Camps, where he enjoyed serving campers with other college staff.

In his free time, AJ enjoys running, playing golf, photography, and music (especially classic country tunes). Each fall, you can find AJ cheering on his Louisiana Tech Bulldogs football team and optimistically hoping for a conference championship.
