I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska and decided to attend Creighton University in my hometown. I graduated in 2018 with a Bachelors of Science in Accounting from the Heider College of Business. I also spent a fair amount of my time attending Bluejay basketball games. Roll Jays!
Upon graduation I worked in external audit at KPMG Omaha, where I worked on a variety of private and public clients ranging from healthcare, telecommunications, logistics, and manufacturing. I spent 3 years gaining business experience, as well as technical accounting skills, and additionally meeting and working with amazing people. However, I knew that auditing was not where I wanted to be in the future so it was time to move on. Looking to what my future could be, I turned my eyes to the West. I, along with my girlfriend, decided to skip the frigid Nebraska winter for some Phoenix sunshine where I discovered Embark and knew almost immediately it was the type of firm I wanted to be a part of.
Having a strong natural inclination and desire to help businesses and people along with a mind geared towards accounting and finance Embark was a perfect fit. It excites me that, on a daily basis, I am able to make a tangible difference and add value to my clients.
Outside of work I enjoy getting outside, playing recreational sports (basketball, volleyball you name it), having weekend game nights with my friends, and a good audio book. You can also find me at the newest restaurant/bars being a part-time foodie. In general I enjoy new experiences, have a passion for adventure and am always looking to learn new things!
