I have always been a tax nerd, but I have also discovered I am good at something else — presenting and teaching on taxes. I present continuing education to fellow tax professionals, and give CPE presentations to industry professionals such as HR pros, payroll pros, business owners and office managers.

I worked for 4 years at a third-part administrator of retirement plans, and started my own tax firm in 2009. I had 3 clients on day 1, and now have over 200 clients. I enjoy helping my clients and alleviating their fears and frustrations with taxes.

I hold a licensed public accountant designation in Iowa (similar to a CPA) and am an Enrolled Agent.

I am a native Iowan and have a degree in corporate communications from Simpson College in Indianola, with an accounting certificate from Simpson. I am married to a truly wonderful wife who is a professor of Spanish and we have two boys who know how to keep us plenty busy and continually in motion. We also have a menagerie of 4 cats and 3 dogs. As a long-time history buff, I’ve become a bit of an expert on the Battle of the Little Big Horn (Custer’s Last Stand) which I’ve studied since I was 10 years old. I’m also an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals in baseball, and all things Iowa Hawkeye.
