I am a US Certified Public Accountant with over 35 years of public accounting experience. I’ve been practicing in Canada since 2002 and I lead Fuller Landau’s US Tax practice.

I’m a former Big Four partner. My expertise focuses on two distinct client groups: Canadian businesses with US federal and state tax filing obligations, and high-net-worth Americans residing in Canada.

In our practice, I often help clients manage tax treaty and state tax nexus considerations. I also help our clients with state sales tax compliance as well as resolving disputes they may have with the IRS or other tax authority.
