8th Light Craftsman since August 6th, 2012
Ben attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, majoring in Chinese Language and Literature and International Studies. After a few years in Beijing, he decided that he wanted to write software and found his way into a novice apprenticeship under Brian Pratt in January 2012.
After three months of learning the basics of clean programming, he accepted a residency under Paul Pagel and sharpened his skill sets by participating in a number of team and individual projects.
Outside of working to improve in his craft, Ben also enjoys exercise, reading and coffee.
