Chuck is looking to go directly from his undergraduate studies to a PhD program in accounting with a focus in managerial accounting research. His goal is to become a professor where he will research and teach accounting students in managerial and cost accounting. Outside of education, Chuck is passionate about playing sports such as golf, tennis, volleyball, and basketball as well as playing videogames and watching YouTube in his spare time. Most importantly, he is the Ohio State University intramural racquetball(2x) and doubles tennis champion. This is his crowning achievement.
