Call us when you outgrow your bookkeeper or when you can’t do it yourself. When you need long term strategy and a sounding board based on math, experience and sometimes a gut. When reconciling pass-through costs and calculating a rate card for an RFP is now a process. We’re a dedicated staff with some helpful technology thrown in for good measure.
We are not a bookkeeping service. We’re a finance department, coming to you with administrative help, bookkeepers, junior and senior accountants, a Controller, CFO and CPAs. All ready when you need them and for just the projects they’re best suited to deliver for you.
Your clients don’t know we’re outsourced. In fact, your employees may not know, either. as far as anyone knows, we’re all on your team!
We’ve been in the industry since dial-up modems were a thing and we’ll still be here when Elon Musk figures out how to do it telepathically.
Kevin has been in public accounting since 1992, working mainly with small businesses and high net-worth individuals. From his start in a 3-person firm to Tax Manager of a 600+-person company in New York City, he lived and breathed accounting even before it was cool. Kevin has won a number of awards (who knew there were awards for accounting!), has been published multiple times in various industry publications and hosts webinars attended by CPAs for Intuit. Kevin has worked predominantly with creative clients since he was a pup.
The affinity with creatives is natural: Kevin is also a tech junkie and software designer with a number of firsts under his belt—like the first accounting iPhone app, TaxVault, and the first “how not to” blog-turned-book, Negatism. And for fun, founded CPApp®, an online tool that provides everything you need to run an accounting firm that he sells to other CPA firms.
When he’s not working, he spends his time reading and looking for his golf ball. He lives in Easton, CT with his first wife and two children.
Since joining us, Russell has worked exclusively with our major business clients, now acting as Controller for the largest. He also oversees many of our small business clients, and guides our talented staff using “real world” experience: having been a commercial photographer in a previous life, Russell understands the concerns of creatives and can talk their language.
In the midst of any chaos, Russell manages to keep calm. He’s extremely detail-oriented, has a couple of education degrees, is the in-house IT guy who we trust more than our IT guy, and also is a certified Intuit ProAdvisor. He went Apple before it was cool and stays a Mets fan even when it’s not.

Unlike our competitors, we don’t force you to use our own proprietary software to “lock” you into our ecosystem. We offer it when you don’t have a working process in place already or just think ours is cooler (like we do!).
The final product is a detailed, specific white paper with recommendations you can use as a roadmap to get your Finance department up to speed… or even to validate it’s all being done efficiently and accurately already. We waive the fee if you sign on for an ongoing Finance Department engagement.
