has helped companies file numerous registration statements, working with investment bankers and attorneys, and
ensuring compliance with SEC rules and regulations. Steven’s insight and guidance are based on more than 28 years
of auditing public companies and working with the SEC.

Steven’s work is well-respected by colleagues and financial executives. While at EisnerAmper he authored an annual research report for 8 years, Concerns About Risks Confronting Boards. This publication was well received by major media and financial outlets as well as for-profit entities focused on the issues of risk and reputation. He has done various webinars on such topics as how to go public and SPACs. His analysis of accounting and risk-related topics is regularly quoted in professional publications. And, he is frequently engaged to speak for audiences that span the life science and technology industries. Prior to EisnerAmper, he worked at Ernest & Young as a Senior Manager.
As an internal leader, Steven has led numerous training sessions on critical topics including audit
