A practicing accountant since 1977, I am the founder of Sanford & Company, P.A.  Prior to establishing my own firm, I worked as a manager in a large local firm, which merged with a much larger regional firm.

In my professional life, while I am involved in all aspects of the firm, I focus my efforts in estate planning, business valuations, management consulting, and technology consulting.  I find these areas more stimulating because they involve a greater lever of creativity and ingenuity.  They also offer more personal contact with my clients, which I find most rewarding.

I take great pleasure in volunteering my time and expertise to local non-profit organizations that are focused on assisting children, either by providing emergency shelter or by providing quality education.

When not at work, you are likely to find me enjoying beautiful Lake Ouachita with my family, foolishly attempting to improve my skills at wake boarding and slalom skiing.  Or, if its too cold for water sports, we are off to the Rocky Mountains for snow skiing whenever we can.

One of my greatest passions is playing music R&B, classic rock and a bit of contemporary country.  It's not unheard of to find me on stage playing guitar with a few friends when the demands of work and family allow.
