Hey! I'm Joel.

I started Accounting for Humans because I was frustrated with the state of the accounting industry. It seemed like the focus was on everything except serving actual businesses and their owners in a meaningful way.

My mission with Accounting for Humans is to embark on deep and impactful financial work with inspiring Canadian small (but mighty) businesses.

We are very selective in taking new clients, because we don't want our attention spread too thin. This space gives us the rare opportunity (rare in this profession, anyways) to create and collaborate with owners in a non-stressful way.

If any of this resonates with you, please reach out and start a conversation. We would love to connect and support you any way that we can.

Joel loves collecting knowledge (about pretty much everything) and puzzling out the most elusive challenges in business and life. Outside of work hours he can usually be found hanging out with his partner and/or their furry companions, Yoshi (Pomeranian) and Noodles (Miniature Schnauzer)
