Meet Michael Wander
Michael Wander Michael Wander, Wander CPA

Hi there! I’m Michael Wander, the face behind Wander CPA. My journey began with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington, where I double-majored in Judaic Studies and Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations. After spending a few years exploring Israel and the Middle East, I pivoted to accounting and earned my MBA from CUNY’s Zicklin School of Business.

On a personal note, I now have five kids and a newfound commitment to fitness. I hit the gym 4-5 times a week and have taken up Muay Thai and no-gi grappling. I’ve even competed in amateur MMA and Muay Thai competitions – it’s my favorite way to earn a black eye!

Professional Journey
My professional career began at PwC Los Angeles as an Auditor. After gaining invaluable experience at the Big 4, I joined City National Bank, where I supported M&A, derivatives investments, and valuation. This experience provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the critical role accounting plays in business success.

As a CPA, I found myself increasingly approached by business owners with their tax questions. This inspired me to focus on smaller businesses and make a bigger impact. I started taking on side accounting jobs and soon realized that if I wanted my clients to take me seriously, I needed to go “all in” with Wander CPA.

One pivotal day, while sitting at my computer, I had an epiphany: the timing would never be perfect. I knew that we only live once, and if I didn’t take the plunge now, I might forever be stuck in a dead-end career serving a master because I was too afraid to take my destiny into my own hands. I was confident that I would not fail, as long as I focused intensely on helping others. Success would not happen on its own; it required dedication and a relentless commitment to delivering value.
