MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY: As a trusted advisor, I try to find out what the client would like and will need so that I can tailor each engagement based on what is best for the client. I am very creative and, as a team player, I enjoy helping clients find solutions to challenges and problems.

NOTABLE SUCCESSES: I have helped clients creatively finance projects. I have also helped resolve difficult negotiation issues. It is very rewarding when I see a client succeed.

PROVEN TRACK RECORD: With over thirty years of tax planning experience and knowledge, I am able to understand a client’s needs and see things from the client’s perspective. I am always thinking about our clients’ businesses and how we can help them grow – not just when I am in the office working specifically on their account.


What are some issues within your specialty that are commonly overlooked or not addressed by clients? Sometimes people are so focused on tax planning that they don’t make good business decisions. I try to help people look at the overall picture.

What are some of the most pressing issues facing your clients today and how do you add value in helping them tackle them? With the current tax structure, it is very difficult to build wealth. I strive to help clients increase their wealth.

When I’m not at work: I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My favorite activity is walking or hiking. I especially enjoy spending time in the Cleveland Metroparks. I don’t have a bucket list per se, but I do set goals. My overall goal is to be the best husband, father, friend and business associate that I can be. I get a deep sense of satisfaction when I feel I am making progress toward these goals. I also try to be involved in community and civic activities as this gives me a deep sense of fulfillment.
