Who I work with

I work with controllers, directors of finance, CFOs and board members of tax-exempt organizations with total revenue and support of $5 million or more, particularly those involved in advocacy (501(c)6 or 501(c)4).

My specialty

I specialize in assurance services for tax-exempt organizations, nonprofit consulting and board training/education. As a director and mentor for our nonprofit assurance practice, I work with other industry leaders to continuously improve our group’s processes and performance. I also network with potential prospects and other industry referral sources. I take pride in building relationships with my clients that are based on frequent communication, deep technical insight, trust and stability.

Results I have delivered

A new client wasn’t getting their audit wrapped up until 11 months after year-end. We brought that down to 3 months, which enhances their ability to govern, boosts their internal controls over reporting and provides timely information for stakeholders.

Unique things about me

My wife and I greatly enjoy hiking. In 2015, we hiked 110 miles during our honeymoon at Glacier National Park in Montana.


When I am not at work

I enjoy watching Philadelphia sports (i.e., Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, Flyers), fishing and hiking —particularly in upstate Pennsylvania where I have a cabin. My favorite sport to follow is football.

People say I am


Energetic, enthusiastic and empathetic.
