What are you working on now? 

"With the new presidential administration coming, there is a strong likelihood for changes in the business and individual income tax world. I am therefore currently working on tax planning for many small businesses and individuals considering the current year tax law changes and those that may come in 2009 and 2010."

What are the most interesting issues you work on clients with?

"Volatile economic times lead to a wide variety of strategic planning considerations including the effect of tax law changes. My most interesting projects involve being a part of business strategic planning, including income tax planning, internal accounting processes and helping business owners best interpret their financial statements."

What is your firm’s growth strategy?
"No matter what we do for clients today, we truly believe we can do more for them tomorrow. Our clients and other business advisors recognize this and therefore feed our growth with new projects and clients."

What is the most challenging project you’ve been involved with?
"I work with a number of physician practices, and health care in the southeastern Wisconsin has changed a great deal in recent years with practice mergers and acquisitions. My most challenging projects have involved working with some practices who have been purchased, others who have lost physicians and many who want to practice independently in an environment that is becoming more controlled by large hospitals and health systems."

What was the funniest moment of your career?
"I was once on the Jumbotron at a Bucks game dancing with one of my kids and embarrassing my wife. I received three calls on my mobile phone within 10 minutes and it turned out I was sitting two rows behind a client who had never seen that side of me. I have never lived the CPA stereotype, but I guess I didn’t have to come out of my shell in front of 18,000 people!"
