Andrew’s prior experience at Nike’s corporate accounting has been useful in understanding how data gets entered into the accounting system and the ways that individual transactions can affect an organization. As a former Financial Advisor for Morgan Stanley, he has always been interested in financial strategic planning. Prior to Opsahl Dawson, he worked as a Staff Accountant at a mid-level Tigard CPA firm. While there, his focus was tax preparation for individuals, trusts, estates, partnerships, S-Corporations, and C Corporations, but he also prepared financial statements, review engagements, outsourced controller, payroll, payroll tax processing, 1099 preparation, QuickBooks bookkeeping, and tax research projects. He passed the CPA exams in 2018. He is looking forward to a long career at Opsahl Dawson as a Certified Public Accountant.
