Who I work with
I work with executives and business owners of mid-market and early-stage technology companies. I’ve provided audit, financial reporting and technical accounting services to clients in a wide variety of industries serving businesses of all sizes from pre-revenue to multi-billion-dollar SEC registrants.
My specialties include audits, compilations and reviews, complex debt/equity structures and technical accounting. I excel at providing clients with simple explanations to complex accounting matters such as revenue recognition under ASC 606 and lease accounting under ASC 842. The experience I have gained serving businesses across a broad range of industries enables me to quickly understand new business models and my clients’ technical accounting and financial reporting needs.
