I have been in public accounting for 39 years; the last 27 have been spent with Dennen & Simons LLC. It is my pleasure to serve the tax, accounting and payroll needs of small businesses, and I enjoy helping people achieve success in their business life. I am married to Aileen and have three grown children, a beautiful granddaughter and another granddaughter on the way. Outside of work, my interests include: the Bears, the Blackhawks, the Cubs, golfing and anything related to barbecue.
