Mical has his sister to thank for sparking his lifelong interest in accounting and finance. “She helped me invest when I was about 12 years old,” Mical says. “I ended up losing money overall, but I learned a great deal about investment risk and it opened a window into the accounting world.”
Mical calls himself a “homegrown tomato” because he was fortunate to be hired straight from Cal Poly by Glenn Burdette, where he has since enjoyed working his way up. “I’m best known as a ‘trust guy’ or ‘nonprofit guy,’” Mical says. “I love the challenge of helping clients navigate an ever-changing tax landscape and guiding them toward the best solutions.”
Originally from Red Bluff, Mical says he and his wife Jenn fell in love with the Central Coast during their time at Cal Poly. Outside of the office he is constantly on the go enjoying local outdoor activities with his wife and kids. Church and family activities are also an integral part of his life, and he enjoys volunteering with the American Red Cross and the Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County. Mical’s words of wisdom? “Trust and responsibility are not rights, but privileges earned from our colleagues, family and clients.”
One of Mical’s favorite books is The Fountainhead, by Ayn Rand.
Two things that would be tough for Mical to give up are ice cream and coffee.
Mical credits his high school tennis coach with instilling in him the importance of work ethic.
Mical’s favorite movie memories were watching James Bond movie marathons with his dad.
