The Founders

ClearSky Payments was founded on the premise that every business owner is a vital part of the community and deserves a fair, comprehensive merchant account. After 20 years of owning and operating small businesses and having to switch processors multiple times due to misleading contracts, hidden fees and poor service, it became clear that there was a need for an agency that could offer more. We are dedicated to fulfilling this need.

Daniel holds a Masters degree from CU in Counseling Psychology and undergraduate degrees in Traditional Eastern Arts as well as Contemplative Psychology from The Naropa University in Boulder. He co-owned and operated a Denver based wholesale business, has been a T'ai Chi practitioner for 25 years, taught professionally for 6 years while implementing his T'ai Chi for Senior Citizen Fitness and T'ai Chi for Corporate Stress Management program throughout the Denver metro area. Daniel enjoys hiking, mountain biking, live music and is an avid monoskier.

Paulette is a former public school educator who enjoys being a mom, volunteering in the community, reading, and outdoor activities.

"Every day, with every company we serve, we work with our clients' needs in mind. Our mission is simple: to provide the best, most cost effective solutions at low rates and favorable terms with a dedication to personalized customer service. We believe this helps our merchants to better serve their customers. And it is our hope that this, in part, helps to create a better sense of community."
