Sky Kurlbaum has been a lawyer for over 30 years practicing in the areas of business, tax and estate planning.  He also passed his CPA exam  in 1981, just before his 21st birthday, and is a Kansas licensed CPA.  He earned degrees in business administration, economics and accounting while at Drury University where he graduated cum laude.  While there, he was also a member of the school's National Championship basketball team.  Sky attended the University of Missouri at Kansas City law school and graduated with distinction.  Sky has served as an adjunct professor at the law school.

An avid believer in the spirit of American entrepreneurialism, Sky started his first businesses when he was only 19 and just a Junior in college--Sky's Ski and Sail (a retail sail boat and water ski shop) and Estate Management (a lawn care company), both at Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri.  Before turning 30, Sky also started a company called "Law Card", a private label credit card company for payment of legal fees.  It operated nationwide and was innovative enough to warrant a write up in the New York Times.  Today, Sky and his family own and operate Kurlbaum's Heirloom Tomatoes (www.kurlbaumtomatoes.com) a purveyor of fine tomatoes that supplies over 40 Kansas City area restaurants with tomatoes during the summertime. Sky offers his business, legal, tax and accounting services gained over his lifetime to people and the businesses they own.  Sky and his wife Liz have five children and live in Overland Park, KS.
