Most people can't say they had their student pilot's license and were taking flying lessons before getting their driver's license, but Bradford can!

Bradford received his Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Brigham Young University – Idaho in 2012. The following year, he received his Master of Accountancy in Taxation from the University of Idaho. Before joining ATKG in 2020, Bradford spent seven years in public accounting for mid-sized firms in Texas and California, working primarily in the oil & gas industries. In 2021, Bradford received his Enrolled Agent (EA) certification from the Internal Revenue Service.

Bradford is community-minded, having served on the Board of Directors for CalCPA’s-Central Coast Chapter and as Treasurer for the San Luis Obispo County Historical Society. Although he has found his way into the world of accounting, there was a time when he wanted to be an airline pilot. He received his student pilot’s license and took flying lessons before even having his driver’s license.

When Bradford is ready to take a step back and recharge, you can find him traveling to new places, hiking, or enjoying his passion for photography. A fun fact is that he lived in Panama for two years. When asked what his perfect vacation would be, Bradford stated Portugal. In his opinion, the country is very underrated, and he is confident you will agree once you see its breathtaking cities and beaches.
