I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska and Graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a BSBA major in accounting in 1985. I went to work for a small company called Transceiver Mid-America as their accountant and bookkeeping solution San Antonio. I had a burning desire to work for a Public Accounting Firm. My two favorite classes in college were entrepreneurship and the tax class. I got my CPA license in 1988 and worked in Public Accounting for 5 years. I loved my job and continued to learn more and more about Corporate and Individual taxes for preparation as a professional service.
My entrepreneur spirit led me to start my own business which was completely by accident. I made up a shirt that said Echo un magnifico Italiano, which translates to, here is one magnificent Italian. I was asked several times where I got the shirt, and if I could get them one. After hearing this over and over again, I said to myself if Italians are proud of their heritage what about other ethnic groups? I did some research to find the most popular ethnic groups in Omaha and decided to print some shirts in the ethnic language and sell them in a mall at Christmas time. Our first year we sold $30,000 in six weeks with seven designs. We had people asking for other nationalities so the following year we expanded the designs and did $50,000. We continued to expand for the next 15 years adding locations and designs. I believe our best year sales were approximately 3 million dollars. The malls continued to raise the rent and sales started dropping. At that time I was approaching 40, and had a strong desire to get back into Public Accounting full time. I continued to prepare 50 individual tax returns and 10 Corporate returns each year to keep my hands in it. I sold the business in 2006, and at that time my wife expressed a strong interest to move where it was warm. We decided to re-locate the family to beautiful San Antonio, Texas.
Shortly after moving to San Antonio, Texas I started working in Public Accounting and 8 months later October of 2007, I bought into a CPA practice and started providing corporate tax services in North San Antonio. I continued to brush up on my skills and expand my clientele for the next 4 years. In the fall of 2011 I decided it was time to go on my own to gain more control of my income and to expand the practice. My experience as a small business owner managing employees, preparing sales projections by design, ordering product, negotiating leases, and managing the day to day accounting functions of running a small business have helped better understand the great benefits of being a small business owner and appreciation of time and dedication it takes to run a small business.
