– What did you do before the call of accounting and advisory?
Worked at a non-profit on the NDIS and delivered food for UberEats. As a kid, I would do stocktakes of my toy cars and record them on a hand drawn spreadsheet.
– Describe the accounting stereotype.
The go-to person for splitting bills.
– How does Wheelhouse break the stereotype?
I had the following conversation with Ayse (our managing director) in my interview:
Ayse: How do you find those paintings on the wall?
Me: I bought a vintage poster the other day, and the shopkeeper asked about my line of work. I replied I'm an accountant. The shopkeeper then said "accountants don't buy art".
We buy art.
– What appealed to you about Wheelhouse?
That I know we care.
– Where do you see the future of the profession?
Artificial Intelligence. Our roles will no longer be number crunching but strategy building.
– What inspires you?
Interesting shapes and objects.
– What would you do if you weren't doing this job?
– Where is your favorite place to be?
Toronto. I almost moved to Canada.
– What is your definition of success?
If you're happy doing what you're doing.
– Name one thing you can't resist.
That sound my car makes when I downshift.
