EDUCATION

I graduated from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting in 1980.  Later on, I attended and took night courses to obtain my Masters of Science degree in Taxation from Golden Gate University in 1986.    

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Upon my graduation, I worked for a national accounting firm in their Los Angeles and San Francisco offices for six years.    Subsequently, my wife and I moved to Evansville, Indiana where I worked for a large, local accounting firm for another six years.  My job position/title upon leaving both these CPA firms was "Tax Manager."   Since arriving in the Pacific Northwest in 1997, I worked for a local accounting firm in Bellevue, Washington before finally deciding to open up my own accounting/CPA practice in 2004.  In my 30+ years of public accounting experience, I have worked with both small and large companies in many/various types of industries.  I have provided a broad range of services for individuals, business owners, executives and independent professionals.

PERSONAL

I am married.  I have three daughters (two post college and one college student).  My wife has two children (a high school senior and a college junior).  Our dogs are both beagles who go crazy for walks and treats.  We live in Bellevue, Washington.  We love it here.  We go camping in our Coleman pop-up tent trailer in the spring and summer seasons.  We also enjoy taking hikes at various places around the Pacific Northwest throughout the year.   Lastly, we love taking summer vacations in places with warm, sandy, sunny beaches.
