Bean Counter, Number Cruncher, Tax Geek. All nicknames I come by honestly. I grew up in the world of business and taxes. My parents started this firm when I was 13 years old. I am not sure what other families talk about at the dinner table. But at mine, it was inventory turnover, days in accounts receivable, pricing, staffing, and taxes. My career has provided me with great opportunities to use that early learning. Since graduating from BYU, I have worked with big companies, little companies, private ones, and publicly held ones; climbing from bookkeeper to CFO. Every job had the primary goal of either increasing profits, or decreasing taxation. It's still what I do today. I want my business, individual, trust, and estate clients to pay what they owe, but not a penny more.
