A former professional baseball player and Seattle native, Fred joined Glenn Burdette in 1988 and focuses on tax consulting and preparation as a tax principal. Fred is best known for his extensive knowledge and experience in his tax work for the construction, wine and beer, and healthcare industries. “I eliminate surprises for my clients,” Fred says. “Making a difference in their businesses and lives and helping clients in any way that we can excites me.”
Fred loves to spend time with family and friends enjoying his passions of fishing, golfing and the beach.
Fred began developing his work ethic as a youth doing maintenance on baseball fields near his home. “Being involved with sports all my life has taught me to work hard at anything I do and has molded me into the person I am today,” Fred says. “It’s a cliché, but loving what you do in life never hurts either”
Fred, his wife and three sons visit a different baseball city each year.
