Senior Manager
David joined ATKG in October of 2019 and brings with him 8 years of public accounting experience.

His tax proficiency includes international tax and his industry knowledge includes Real Estate and Professional Services firms. David received his Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting degree in 2012 from The University of Texas at San Antonio. David is a firm believer of supporting his community and the public accounting industry. As a result, he currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants San Antonio.

When David was 12 years old, he aspired to be an automotive designer or engineer after spending years working on cars with his father. Although he never got the chance to create a one-of-kind vehicle like he dreamed of, he did find other ways to seize memorable life moments. David and his wife are avid travelers. Their first adventure was to Whistler Canada just a few months after they started dating. However, their most favorite travel adventure entailed hiking Yosemite for 3 days followed by 3 more days of site seeing and simply relaxing in San Francisco.

David admits California has a lot to offer, including great year-round weather, beaches, mountains, national parks and some pretty amazing food. But he’s quick to follow-up his statement with “Texas will always be my home”. Just between you and I, ATKG is also darn happy the Higginbotham family calls Texas home!
