“Hands on” and “many hats” are the ways Mike describes his early years in public accounting. Initially working for independent sole practitioner offices afforded him the chance to roll up his sleeves and work directly with clients in the areas of payroll, sales tax, bookkeeping, auditing and tax services.

Now recognized at Glenn Burdette for his expertise and experience in assisting small to medium-sized businesses with all of their tax planning needs, Mike says he is excited to help clients realize their financial dreams. “I want them to know that I truly care about their well-being in business and in life,” he says.

Growing up in Bakersfield, Mike studied business administration at Fresno State University before launching his career and life with his wife and two children. A dedicated sports fan, Mike enjoys daily banter with friends about his favorite teams. He volunteers with Enhancement, Inc., a local non-profit that benefits breast cancer survivors, a subject close to his heart because of its impact on his family. Music is an integral part of Mike’s life, too. “It would be near impossible to go through life without it,” he says.

  • Mike is involved with several North County charitable groups and enjoys spending his free time with his wife, Susie, and their two children.
  • He also enjoys playing cards, golf and working out at the gym.
