I am a C.P.A. with extensive corporate accounting experience much of it with major builders and developers such as KB homes (then Kaufman and Broad) and Simpson Housing. I have also had experience on the equity side, partnering with and providing funds to residential builders. My public accounting experience consisted of 6 years of general audit, financial and tax work at a variety of companies from manufacturing to real estate firms to high net worth individuals. I believe this solid foundation and diverse background translates well into many different industries and enables me to be successful in a variety of environments. 

Arden - Controller 

I consider myself a team leader, mentor, coach, strategic thinker who can see the big picture as well as get deep into the details.
