“I strive to become a client’s trusted advisor and enjoy satisfaction in helping them meet their goals.”

I joined Johanson & Yau in 1989 from a big four international accounting firm and served as managing partner from 2000 to 2012. During this time, I helped the firm launch its wealth management practice and join BKR International, a global accounting association of 160 independent member firms in 80 countries.

I have extensive experience helping clients with accounting and tax planning issues, including guidance on both the sale and purchase of businesses. I work closely with my clients throughout the year to address emerging concerns, answer questions and promote smart planning.

I live in San Jose with my wife and we enjoy spending time with our two daughters – and traveling, especially in Hawaii.
