Haris' journey began with a passion for engineering. However, after a few accounting classes, he shifted his focus to mastering the intricacies of accounting. This change led him to complete his studies at Portland State University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree with a focus on accounting.
Once his studies concluded, Haris entered an internship with a large regional firm to work on tax compliance. One of his prominent tasks was helping clients with California Franchise Tax Board compliance matters. He quickly assumed a heavy workload, which prompted him to develop effective time management strategies to ensure timely project completion.
Haris joins Primetrics as a staff accountant and will be responsible for full-cycle accounting, implementation of internal controls, financial statement reviews, and system implementations. He aims to utilize the knowledge and skills he acquires in this role to prepare for the CPA exam.
Haris has an outgoing personality as expressed by some of his favorite hobbies. A notable one is demoing his guitar-playing skills, which occupy most of his free time when he is not out hiking in the northwest mountains. On occasion, he will bring his guitar along when venturing into the forest in search of a beautiful camping location. When he does decide to stay in, Haris is a movie enthusiast and possesses an extensive knowledge of films. If you happen to be a fellow movie savant, he is more than willing to engage in conversations about upcoming and recent releases.
