I am a seasoned accountant with over thirty years of experience in both the private and public sectors. For the last twenty years I have been working primarily with startup technology companies in a contract Controller role. I am based out of Menlo Park (San Mateo County, CA). I graduated from Santa Clara University in 1981 and was granted my CPA license in 1985. I truly enjoy my work and always look forward to working with new clients.
