Known for his taxation expertise, Steve is regularly sought after to lead seminars on current and complex tax law for professional associations and private vendors throughout the country. “My past experience as a musician has helped me feel comfortable in front of large groups,” he says

For Steve, helping his clients and colleagues understand complex, technical tax and business issues is what it’s all about. Which probably has a lot to do with why he was named a ‘Super CPA’ by both Minnesota Law & Politics and Twin Cities Business Monthly.

Outside of the office, Steve keeps his performance skills sharp by continuing to play the occasional trumpet gig. he says his favorite activities are spending time with his wife and coaching his son’s sports teams.
