Growing up in a farming community, James learned at an early age the value of hard work, the strength of a small community and the satisfaction of a job well done. Following in his father’s footsteps, as a public accountant he appreciates the wisdom his father passed on; “someone else can always do it cheaper, and they, better than anyone, know the value of their service.” Keeping that advice in mind James focuses on providing clients with quality service for a reasonable cost.
James is a Chartered Accountant with a Bachelor of Commerce degree and is a respected member of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce Tax and Economic Affairs Committee. His industry experience includes the real estate, manufacturing, professional service firms, oil and gas and technology industries with key practice expertise in taxation, estate planning, mergers and acquisitions and excise tax. He received his CA designation in 2000 and has completed all levels of the Chartered Accountants in-depth taxation course.
In his spare time James is an avid open water swimmer, motorcyclist and sand dune explorer.
