As a national partner in EY’s Professional Practice Group, I was responsible for providing technical consultation, assistance and guidance on complex accounting and reporting issues.

I possess more than 34 years of experience serving a variety of clients, primarily energy, technology and telecommunications companies, with an extensive focus on SEC issues. I am also active in the community. I’m currently the vice chair of the board of directors for the Houston Downtown Management District, which is an organization driven to promote and encourage business, tourism, arts, and entertainment in downtown Houston.
