“I’m not that good at coming up with catchy quotes.”

I began my accounting career in 2005, as a bookkeeper for a local machine shop and preparing income tax returns for family members. I joined Johanson & Yau in 2008 after completing a tax internship with the firm. I’m dedicated to helping clients realize financial success by designing practical solutions to meet their unique objectives.

I live in San Jose with my wife and daughter. My deep appreciation for the natural world leads to many activities that I enjoy, including camping, backpacking, fishing, hunting, gardening, beekeeping, chicken raising and aquascaping.
