Roger was born and raised in Cameroon, West Africa. Growing up in a strict Catholic home, his mom always made sure he and his brothers kept their rooms in order. This task turned into a habit which turned into an organizational skill that sparked his interest in accounting.
Roger’s formative years as an accountant began at a CPA firm as a bookkeeper. During his time there, Roger helped a medical supplies company automate and improve their accounting processes. He was also a key player in helping a real estate investment company in MD, VA, and NY to organize their properties; he created a process to record the purchase, sales and improvements of each property.
Roger is a Certified Bookkeeper, certified by the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB). He also holds a QuickBooks Online advanced certificate from Intuit and is a QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor. In his spare time Roger likes to watch all genres of TV shows, play Scrabble, and chat with friends and family online.
