I teach tax, entrepreneurship, and cybersecurity.
Prior to moving to Texas, I taught at Brigham Young University, the University of New Hampshire, LSU, Syracuse University, the University of Idaho, and the University of Washington Foster School of Business. My primary areas of speaking, teaching and research involve entrepreneurship, US and international taxation, IP taxation, and ethics within the tax profession.
Before I began teaching, I was a principal shareholder in a tax boutique, where I coached startups, was involved in domestic and international tax planning, and represented individuals and businesses before the Internal Revenue Service and state tax agencies. I am a frequent speaker in the U.S. and Asia on topics involving the intersection of intellectual property, business, and taxation.
I've been cited in Forbes, and my articles have been published in the Hofstra Law Review, the National Law Journal, the William Mitchell Law Review, the BYU Journal of Public Law, the St. Mary's Law Journal, and Tax Notes, among others, and I'm one of the authors of the treatise, Family Law in Utah.
I received a B.S. from Brigham Young University, a J.D. from the J. Reuben Clark Law School, and an LL.M in Taxation from the University of Washington. I've been named a Visiting Scholar at the National University of Singapore, Division of Engineering & Technology Management.
I'm married with four children, and spend equal amounts of time chaperoning youth camps, working on various web and smartphone app projects, and teaching myself the ukulele.
