For him, partnering with people throughout the interview process is the most fulfilling part of the job. Ben is married with three kids and lives in Lake Oswego.

Great Recruiters Ratings


Ben is extremely encouraging and knows the needs of his client. He is the first consultant that I worked with and have always loved working with him then on. He is very good at responding to emails/texts as needed and will surely try to get what you are looking for. I recommend him to everyone I know.

Ben takes the time to get to know not only candidates on a detailed level but also the companies he deals with. Ben's constantly looking to learn more about the industry from all angles and as a result is great for bouncing ideas off of.

Lead Software Engineer
Ben has been great to work with! He's very precise in selecting which roles to mention to me, and he's been a great coach regarding the interview process as whole — including interview prep, qualifying the opportunity, understanding the role and team dynamics, compensation expectations, and getting feedback from the employer after interviews. Ben is knowledgeable and focused on making the experience great for candidates. He's got tons of experience and is very responsive for time-sensitive stuff. I highly recommend working with Ben, when you're open to new opportunities!
