Doug’s public accounting career began in 2012 when he started working at SMCO. Doug’s drive and aptitude for accounting were evident and he grew in the firm until becoming Principal in 2018. Doug specializes in audit, review and compilations services in a variety of industries such as real estate, construction, manufacturing, pension plan, government, and not-for-profit. Currently, he is a member of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) team located in Redlands, CA where 90% of his time is spent in the affordable housing industry planning, performing and reviewing audit engagements performed in accordance with GAAS, Yellow Book, and OMB UNIFORM GUIDANCE for public housing authorities, HUD assisted entities and related not-for-profits.

Much of Doug’s working hours are spent travelling, when he is on the road he enjoys meeting new people and trying new foods.  When he is not travelling, Doug spends time with his dog Cooper.

Why Douglas Loves SMCO:

“The benefits of working as an accountant may not be well-known and viewed as the most glamorous job, but I  enjoy the problem solving, the opportunity to work with numbers and the ability to make strategic recommendations that can impact clients. Supportive colleagues and appreciative clients are valuable benefits, too.”
