I moved to Colorado in 2002, less than a year after a ski trip to Telluride, Colo. — a trip I refer to as my epiphany because once I visited Telluride, I knew I wanted to live here.

Partner, CPA


As the financial services practice leader for the Rocky Mountain region, I provide services to private equity, venture capital, asset managers, and technology and services companies. Additionally, I’m the office managing partner for our Downtown Denver office, where I support and develop staff, and focus on growing our local community entrenchment.

I’ve been in public accounting for over 25 years and a few noteworthy accomplishments include assuming leadership of the financial services practice in the Rocky Mountain Region, and growing our investment fund and financial institution practice. I’m dedicated to expanding the financial services practice every day — in terms of serving more clients and creating opportunities for staff to advance in their careers and assisting our people in their career development.

I’m a member of the AICPA, the Colorado Society of CPAs, and the New York Society of CPAs. I graduated from the University of Alabama in Huntsville with a B.S.B.A. in accounting.

I enjoy traveling and spending time in the mountains, especially during the summer and during the ski season.
