Away from the office
- Michael’s first job was at a thrift store where he enjoyed seeing a continual parade of interesting donations.
- In a family of five children, Michael was the fourth born in the lineup.
Michael gains enjoyment from learning how his clients’ businesses operate; making complex concepts easy to understand; and finding solutions to minimize the impact of tax liabilities. Clients appreciate his detailed and thorough approach.
Originally from Minnesota, Michael moved to the Central Coast with his family when he was six years old and was raised in Santa Maria. After graduating from Cal Poly, he began his career at Glenn Burdette. Michael was happy to stay in an area where he already had some roots. Primarily based out of our Santa Maria office, he has become known for his abilities in property transactions, cost segregation studies, estate tax issues, and for his work with clients in manufacturing, agriculture, and real estate.
A diehard Minnesota Vikings fan, Michael doesn’t miss a chance to enjoy a football game, spend time with his wife and children, or get outside for beach, camping or motorcycle excursions. While his parents and most of his siblings have moved back to Minnesota, he says that he loves to travel there to visit family and enjoy its outdoor activities, but the weather here on the Central Coast is too good to leave behind and is perfect for motorcycle riding all year round.
