Brandon joined the ATKG team as an intern in January of 2014 and came on as full time Staff in August. Brandon comes to us from a winding road. In 2008 he graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) with a Bachelors of Music Education. For the next four years Brandon was a full time Band Director at a local middle school. After seeing the light, Brandon became an accountant. He returned to school in the summer of 2012 and earned a Master’s of Accountancy from the University of Texas at San Antonio in December of 2015 and his CPA designation in April of 2016. For the past several years, Brandon has served as an adjunct instructor at UTSA for the Department of Accounting.
Since starting with ATKG, Brandon has worked in a variety of client industries including oil and gas, retail, and non-profit. He has also garnered a reputation for whipping up incredibly delicious office meals during the Firm’s busy season crock pot days. Besides his work at ATKG, Brandon still keeps in touch with his musical roots. He served as an Administrator and Camp Counselor at the University of Texas at San Antonio Middle School Band Camp for nine years and still maintains a private studio of saxophone and clarinet students. He is also a member of the San Antonio Wind Symphony and serves as the ensemble’s Master of Ceremonies and program note author for every concert. Brandon also serves on the Board of Directors for Mozert Festival Texas, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the music of Mozart and his contemporaries. As if that was not enough music, he also invests his free time in the pit band for the San Pedro Playhouse on occasion.
When he is not working on enhancing client prosperity or tutoring the next round of great musicians, Brandon loves to spend time in the kitchen cooking and experimenting with different foods that he then can share with his colleagues, friends, and family. ATKGers are willing “guinea pigs” for all of Brandon’s culinary experiments, particularly any that include the blow torch! Brandon also loves to read and usually has a stack of books and newspapers to get through on any given Sunday afternoon.
