James Nakashima, CPA, CA, CBV
I came to Avail CPA straight from the University of Lethbridge in 2003, and became a partner in 2013. I work with clients in agriculture, owner-managed businesses, and not-for-profits. I am also a Chartered Business Valuator and work with clients to understand what their business is worth, and how to increase the value of their business.
Star Trek or Star Wars
Although I like Star Trek, Star Wars is clearly superior in all ways.
Playstation or Nintendo
I play both, but grew up on a healthy diet of Nintendo, so I will always have a soft spot for Zelda and Mario.
About two weeks after our first child was born, I woke up in the morning and said to my wife, “wow, the baby slept great last night!” The look I got in return told me that the baby did not, in fact, sleep well at all that night. They say there is a fine line between bravery and stupidity and I’m not sure which side I was on that morning. Anyway, that was probably as close to death as I have ever been.
