teaches as an adjunct faculty for Seattle U because in his own school days he
missed the lecture that discussed maximizing the net present value of future
cash flows, but did attend the lecture on maximizing utility. He has taught
undergraduate and graduate courses in both accounting and finance at the
university level. In his day job, he is the owner of Taxation Counseling P.S., a
firm he started to specialize in tax planning for high net worth individuals,
entrepreneurs, and their businesses.
John received several degrees
culminating in a Master of Taxation degree from the College of Law and College
of Business Administration of the University of Denver. John is inordinately
proud of this diploma, as he believes it to be the widest diploma of any faculty
member in the Albers School of Business. John is a licensed Certified Public
Accountant in the State of Washington and Certified Financial Planner. His two
very spoiled cats and dog view him as having potential, but still exhibiting a
great deal of room for improvement.
