The first is as a consultant to public accounting firms and to vendors seeking to serve those firms; the second is as Executive Editor of TheTechGap -- the countrys premier digital resource for content specifically created for the tax and accounting profession and for vendors who seek to serve that community; and the third, just to insure I stay completely current with the trials and tribulations of the practicing accountant, is as Senior Manager of Tax and Technology Consulting with the Top 25 firm of Eide Bailly, LLP.I was the Executive Editor of The CPA Technology Advisor, the country's leading print publication dedicated to the application of technology to public accounting until I left that post in 2009 to slow down.
