Reginald graduated from university in Los Angeles and immediately joined public accounting at the national level at a Big Five accounting firm. After this time, he worked at local accounting firms in Los Angeles for many years. Going through a stint at another national firm, he realized that being at a local accounting firm was where it was at. This realization forced him to join forces with a colleague and opened up a shared practice in South Pasadena, CA. He had this accounting practice for nearly a decade when he chose to live in a small town and made the move to Portland, Oregon. He is quite happy at McDonald Jacobs working at a local firm with local clients.
