About

After years of working with large accounting firms servicing even larger corporations, Adam launched his own practice to help small businesses lower their taxes and enable them to invest in their business. With a robust background in tax planning, he was able to bring the “big firm” resources to the businesses who need it most; those who are often overlooked…the Dark Horse small business.

Originally envisioning himself as a high school math teacher and football coach, he found himself at a business school without a secondary education program. Given his proclivities for math, the debits and credits of accounting came naturally, and was a natural transition. He has had the benefit of working inside several corporate tax teams of larger multinational companies as well as the public-facing side of small and regional accounting firms. He has seen how much of a difference a team of tax CPAs can make for big companies, and has invested over a decade  into developing a highly effective approach for translating the book of incentives (aka the Internal Revenue Code) for small business owners. He has a passion to serve entrepreneurs (who he believes are the backbone of our country) and wants to give them the upper hand in navigating the increasing complex U.S. tax system.

When not providing these tax planning and entity structuring strategies, Adam can be found outside the office, making memories with his wife and their 6 little tax deductions (2 boys, 4 girls). While he hung up the football cleats and track spikes on a competitive level after college, he has found a new outlet for his love of team sports through teaching and coaching his kiddos and their friends. The truth, however, is that the family setting has been the ultimate team sport!

With our prior accountant we didn't feel we were receiving adequate tax guidance and felt we were always paying more than our fair share of taxes. We have been very pleased with the service we have received with Adam. He has taken the time to review in detail our current situation and upcoming plans. With that information he has helped us create tax strategies for our businesses, investments, and personal taxes that not only help us save on taxes but also helps us plan for the future. I highly recommend Adam's accounting firm.
