Battle Born Tax Advisors
Chief, cook and bottle washer. I am a sole proprietor of my LLC.
What does your company do?
We are an accounting firm. We prepare all tax returns (individual and corporate) as well as bookkeeping (monthly, quarterly and year-end-such as W-2 and 1099 preparation).
What is your role?
I prepare and review each and every job.
Where did you grow up and attend school?
I am a proud born and raised Las Vegas native (hence the name “Battle Born”). I graduated from Chaparral High School and UNLV.
What brought you to The Innevation Center?
I was lucky enough to work with Rob Roy at my prior CPA firm and know the quality of the service that Innevation provides, at a spectacular price. Being around fellow “Innevators” is truly exciting.
How has technology changed your business?
My business would not exist even a few years ago. The bulk of my business is my partnership with my partner who is based out of San Diego, CA. We have a couple of Internet based firms; one specializing in the Gig economy (think Airbnb, Uber, etc.) and the other the accounting and compliance for legal marijuana grows and dispensaries.
What is your favorite local spot?
It’s always a treat (as a local) to spend time on the Strip and sample the amazing cuisine that our little town has to offer, but I have to say I love my little spot of my own called home in Southern Highlands.
Phone call or text message?
You can always call or text.
Twitter or Facebook?
Who would you most like to have dinner with (dead or alive)?
This is a cheesy answer, but I would like to have dinner with my paternal grandfather. He passed when I was 3 (so I have no recollection of him). Incidentally, he apparently owned the land where the Sands sat (now the Venetian) and gambled it away (our family has been here a long time…)
If you could time travel, would you go forward or backward?
I’ve always had a strange fascination with Laura Ingalls Wilder, so I think it would be fun to go back and visit her.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Two things actually –
1) please drink more water, and
2) Let go of what other people think about you – my mom has always said “what people think about you is none of your business”
