Dave graduated from Brigham Young University in 1980 and joined the Salt Lake City, Utah office of Haynie & Company. In 1985, he joined Steve Gabrielson in California to assist in the opening of the Haynie & Company office in Newport Beach, California.
Dave has been a Certified Public Accountant for more than 30 years, and has added the CFE (Certified Fraud Examiner) and CVA (Certified Valuation Analyst) certifications to his resume (both have been active since the 1990s).
In addition to providing accounting and auditing services to clients, Dave has served as the acting CFO of public companies, and as the business manager for a Hall of Fame NBA player. He is also qualified as an expert in various litigation matters as a forensic accountant. In addition, he served a term as a member of the National Accounting and Reporting Committee of the Construction Financial Management Association.
Dave takes great pride in providing a hands-on personal level of client service to all of his clients, and even plays tennis with some of them (left handed, of course).
