I am a Professor with Queen’s University Faculty of Law where most of my research and teaching focuses on tax law.

“I wish to inform you that the [tax] profession to which you aspire is, in fact, heroic. . . In fact, the less conventionally heroic or exciting or adverting or even interesting or engaging a labor appears to be, the greater its potential as an arena for actual heroism, and therefore as a denomination of joy unequaled by any you can yet imagine.” David Foster Wallace, The Pale King, as discussed in Arthur J. Cockfield, David Foster Wallace on Tax Policy, How to be an Adult and Other Mysteries of the Universe (2015)
