“It’s accrual world out there. I can help.”
I joined Johanson & Yau in 2010 after working both in public accounting and private industry. I provide tax planning and compliance services for high net worth individuals, privately held businesses, and estates and trusts. I enjoy collaborating with my colleagues to provide financial peace of mind on behalf of our clients and working with them closely to help achieve their goals.
I live in Sunnyvale with my wife and son. I am constantly learning more about San Jose/Silicon Valley and discovering ways to engage with our community in meaningful ways. In my free time, I enjoy reading books in a variety of genres, watching and analyzing critically acclaimed films, traveling to new and unique cities with family and friends, and brainstorming puns and dad jokes.
