About the Author

A native Californian, I have lived in Escondido for over 30 years. My wife and I have 3 sons and as a consequence have spent many years at soccer, lacrosse and Little League fields, Christmas pageants, school assemblies and urgent care clinics.

My BS degree is from Santa Clara University and my Masters degree in finance is from San Diego State University. I am currently a partner at AKT, a CPA firm with offices in Escondido and Carlsbad, California and Portland and Salem, Oregon. In my capacity as a partner, I have written many articles and brochures for our client publications. I have written a weekly column in The San Diego Daily Transcript and have also had articles published in the San Diego Business Journal, the North County Times, the Tax Advisor and the Journal of Accountancy. Currently, I am on the Board of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater San Diego as well as its Foundation. I previously chaired the Community Services Commission of the City of Escondido. I am a member of the Escondido Sunrise Rotary Club.

Besides my master's degree in finance and position as a partner in a CPA firm, I am a student of history and have a love for politics. These credentials have given me an understanding of both economics and human nature. This understanding has propelled all of the story lines in my novels. And gave me the basis that I needed to simplify explanations in "Finance & Accounting Made Simpler".

Outskirts Press published my first book, "A Romanov Returns" in 2006. Look for it and four additional titles published on Amazon in both print and Kindle versions.

Look for "Ponzi", "A Romanov Returns", "A Partner's Hidden Life", and "Finance & Accounting Made Simpler" on Amazon or on my website
