“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” ― Dale Carnegie
Jordan is a CPA with over 15 years of experience serving a wide range of clients across many industries and is a Principal at Dark Horse. Jordan has a passion for helping individuals and businesses understand their tax scenarios and provide them with comprehensive planning to help minimize their taxes and maximize their financial options.
Like a proper Dark Horse, Jordan’s journey to becoming a prominent CPA was untraditional and unexpected. It is a journey marked by grit and determination. Originally obtaining a degree in finance, he obtained a job where he was tangentially exposed to tax return preparation. Hungry for more experience, he took a seasonal tax job that involved a 1.5-hour commute. Being offered a full-time position, he began the journey of juggling a demanding work schedule, night classes, studying for the CPA exam and being Super Dad. Through hard work and determination, he has been able to build a successful career for himself as a CPA.
Jordan lives in Houston with his wife, Julie, and their four children, Lahna (16), Llewyn (6), Langston (2), and Lyle (1). Not by choice, but rather by force, his wife also introduced three dogs into the family; a Golden Retriever named Stewie, an overly puffy Pomeranian, Luna, and an old and disgruntled Chihuahua, BooBoo. Admittedly, Jordan is enormously thankful for his wife’s persistence in this matter.
When not accounting, Jordan enjoys tinkering around in his garage with a cold adult beverage, riding bikes, playing t-ball and the occasional home renovation and flip.
