What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
My wife, Chelsi, and I have a goal to visit all 63 United States National Parks. So far, we’ve visited 8 since we got married in 2017. I also enjoy web development, so I spend a fair amount of time maintaining a handful of websites that I manage. My wife and I recently moved to Vermillion, South Dakota, so we’ve been spending our free time exploring the area (state parks, etc). We both love to camp and enjoy the outdoors, so we make a point to visit Colorado each year for a backpacking trip (usually in RMNP).
What is your background?
I come from an entrepreneurial family, so I’ve been involved with family businesses as long as I can remember. I grew up in Lincoln and spent most of my childhood playing golf. The Knolls (the old Lincoln par 3 course which no longer exists) was where I spent most of my summers, and I played actively through high school. I was involved in music (French Horn) from elementary school through college (UNL Marching Band), and I still enjoy playing when given the opportunity.
What do you like about working at BMG?
The best part about working at BMG is the down-to-earth nature of everyone here. BMG allows me to have the opportunities I might see at a large firm while working in a smaller, locally-owned setting.
What are the values that drive you?
Honesty and hard work are what drive my work, and I believe these things are important for the work we do at BMG. Clients trust their CPAs with their lives and businesses, so it’s important for us to be committed to their success(es).
In auditing, the concept of materiality is, simply, setting a threshold that anything under that threshold won’t materially misstate your financial statements. I try to apply this concept to my entire life – basically, don’t sweat the small stuff!In auditing, the concept of materiality is, simply, setting a threshold that anything under that threshold won’t materially misstate your financial statements.
