Check the background of this investment professional on FINRA’s BrokerCheck.


I started working on my families sawmillsawmill
business at the age of 8. It instilled a work
ethic and a common sense country way to
evaluate life’s adventures.

After graduating from Alpena High School, I joined the
United States Army. Life lessons in the military are unique
and are instilled for a life time.

I graduated from California State University, San Bernardino with a Bachelors Degree in
Business Administration with a concentration in public accounting. I was involved in
student government, the Ambassadors Society, and accounting club. CSUSB was one
of the top ten accounting schools in the country when I graduated.

I worked for the big CPA firm right out of college. I did not want
to raise a family in Southern California, so it was back to the midwest
for that. In 1992, I started to work for the company I bought
in 1995.I have over 25 years experience in public accounting.
In 2005, I added financial services to my accounting practice. I
passed my licenses for various financial and insurance products.

In December of 2007, a business idea for a Mexican restaurant became Jose’s Authentic
Mexican Restaurant in downtown Petoskey. I also became Safe Serve Certified as being
a part of that venture.


About 4 years ago, I was working on a business plan for a friend of mine. As it was
getting ready to be birthed into a new business, I was invited to be a part of it. That
business has evolved in to 94.5 WYPV. In 2012, we tested a radio program on the internet called
Your Defending Fathers. Two months later, it became one of the daily shows on the radio stations lineup.
