What's the most common problem you help startup founders with? 

Many startups struggle to form their company based on their current and future plans. I help startup founders understand how best to structure their organization to plan for success. I also assist management on accounting issues – primarily GAAP and tax – so they can focus on their expertise – product development.

Why do you enjoy working with startups? 

The innovation, passion, and entrepreneurial spirit that so many startups have makes them fun to work with. Watching and being part of a company’s journey from start-up to product development to commercialization and exit is an exciting process.

Why have you chosen to work in Orange County?

I was born and raised in Orange County and have spent my professional career and personal life in OC.

Favorite OC restaurant?

Nick’s Deli breakfast burritos in Seal Beach or Harbor House in Sunset Beach for breakfast. Otherwise, OC has so many great restaurants.

Favorite place in OC?

Seal Beach Pier (or in the water in Seal) and Main Street. It’s my hometown and still has a small-town vibe.

Why did your company join the OC Startup Council?

The entrepreneurial spirit is a core value for Armanino and the industries represented by the Startup Council are a perfect match.
