Me in a minute

I treat each case with the attention that I would want as a client, and I am always up for a new challenge.

When I’m not tackling US tax issues, you can find me at CrossFit or hunting for the best mac and cheese in London. I’m passionate about food, fashion, globe-trotting, and experiencing life to the fullest. I enjoy working with individuals in particular because everyone has a unique story. It’s rewarding to help solve personal tax issues and even more rewarding to establish long-term relationships.

I’ve been told that some of my best qualities are positivity, organization, and my drive to provide high quality work. I treat each case with the attention that I would want as a client, and I am always up for a new challenge. In recent years, I’ve crossed off skydiving, bungee jumping, and even scuba diving with sharks from my personal "You can do anything!" list. However, I’m still working on perfecting my mom’s traditional Korean barbecue dish.

I enjoy working with clients across all industries because it gives me the opportunity to learn about new markets and trends. It makes the advice we give much more valuable and practical when we understand our clients and what they do. I think this is something that sets this firm apart and why I’m so proud to be a part of this team.

Last but not least, for my friends and family across the pond, Go Dallas Cowboys!
