Prof. Mullen has been teaching at CCSF since 2001. Prof. Mullen is a former IRS auditor with over 14 years experience in conducting financial investigations, money laundering, abusive tax avoidance schemes and income tax evasion. Prof. Mullen also worked for the Nevada Department of Taxation conducting sales and use tax audits. Prof. Mullen is the Faculty Advisor for the Business Honors Club, Alpha Beta Gamma (ABG), as well as an Honors Professor for Accounting 2, Managerial Accounting. In 2010, Prof. Mullen started the IRS VITA income tax preparation site on the Ocean campus run by members of the ABG Honors Club.

I believe in teaching both the theory and the practice of accounting. I try to make students aware of what they will encounter in their first jobs in the field of accounting. I try to teach them how to deal with the ethical issues and concerns they will face on the job by presenting and discussing these issues in class along with the normal daily lecture and problem solving.

Since we live and work in a global environment, I incorporate basic accounting concepts and business phrases in various languages so that they will not feel intimidated or uncomfortable when conducting global business transactions for the first time. I encourage students to ask questions in class and via email to facilitate the discussion process but also to prepare them for dealing with future clients.

I enjoy reading the history of taxation and international monetary theory. I follow the Euro Zone and world market activities in order to observe how currency and bond markets behave in these uncertain times. I also enjoy reading European political history as well as the history of performing arts (especially opera and ballet) in France, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Russia. I attend regularly the opera and ballet both here in San Francisco, as well as in Paris, Vienna, Munich, St. Petersburg and Moscow, Russia.
