Closely observing his father run a successful small business and working in the fields on his grandfather’s farm in Minnesota Pat knew early on he wanted to run his own business. You might say it’s in his DNA. Over the years he developed a passion for learning about and operating a small business.
After taking a bookkeeping class in high school Pat knew he wanted to be a CPA. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business from the University of Colorado at Boulder he started working for a national CPA firm in Colorado Springs in 1980. Pat started our firm in 1985 offering accounting, tax and consulting to individuals and businesses. We are proud to have several clients that have been with us from the start and that we have been able to assist generations of family members.
He is the proud father of Andrea, Allison and Brent. Outside of the office you can find Pat out running on the Santa Fe Trail or fishing in a mountain stream.

The combination of running a business and your life and preparing for tax time can drive some people into a slight panic. But no need to get stressed if you are prepared. Now is the time to start organizing all documents required to file your tax return.
Like the old paraphrased saying goes: In this world, two things are certain—death and taxes. The recent federal tax overhaul changed a lot of rules, so it’s as important as ever to understand your tax obligations, including those on Social Security benefits.
Unfortunately, cyber scammers never take a vacation. In fact, the IRS has issued a warning of a surge in fraudulent emails that bait potential phishing victims with fake tax transcripts. Links within these emails lead recipients to documents containing the well-known malware, Emotet.
