Hi, I'm Ben.

I’ve practiced public accounting since 2004 and recently joined Larson Gross after working in the nonprofit industry and a 10-year career with a national public accounting firm. I provide accounting and auditing services to nonprofit and for-profit organizations, focusing on giving clients a practical, clear understanding of audit results to help them improve their operations.

I also work collaboratively with clients to understand their goals and objectives; develop policies, processes, and tools; and define organizational and programmatic changes to better equip and position them to achieve their mission.

My specific areas of expertise include financial statement audits, single audits under OMB’s Uniform Guidance, policies and procedures development, organizational assessments and performance audits, internal control risk assessments, and creating training programs for nonprofit staff and board members.

I am a member of the AICPA and a licensed CPA in Washington and California. I received my BBA and Master’s in Accounting from Gonzaga University.

My wife and I have two young sons who keep us on our toes. After several years living and traveling throughout the West and Midwest, we are delighted to be “home” and enjoying all the rewarding experiences the Pacific Northwest has to offer!
