My consulting services combine my knowledge of finance, internal and external audit, traditional technology (expert in Excel and Access, electronic working papers for audit, systems implementations) and new technology (social media, HTML, PHP). I am an expert in the use of Microsoft Excel for financial modeling and proficient in the use of Visual Basic (macros). I am an expert in the use of CCH’s TeamMate software, having led multiple successful implementations. I have worked in over 20 countries, was based in Moscow, Russia for 2.5 years working for 2 Big 4 firms, and now work as a contract consultant. I have experience working with Hyperion and other systems.
I’m also a writer, blogger and speaker. I am an occasional contributor on public radio’s Marketplace Money, and have made numerous other radio, podcast and print appearances. I write and speak on a variety of issues, including personal finance, career management and economic issues.
