I have a passion for making technology easy to use and enjoyable.
I enjoy solving problems with technology. Whether its websites, mobile apps, or games, I am always looking for ways to make things easier and more fun to use.
My experience is as diverse as my interests. I have done web analysis, online marketing, web design, UI design, usability testing, casual game design and whitewater rafting. That last one is just one of the ways I take time to step away from the computer.
"Ben is a web designer/ui craftsman through and through. He's a student of design and is continually striving to find new and innovative ways to inject value in the website, to the benefit of our Customers. He regularly thinks outside the box and is bright enough to actually implement the ideas that most of us just write off as 'un-doable' or 'just too complicated.' Truly a valuable asset to our team."
