I'm Ben.

I'm a full stack software engineer living in Sacramento, developing with Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, React, Drupal, and a variety of other technologies.

I'm a husband and father to an incredible family. My wife blogs about our Christian faith and all the books she's reading at AwaitingTheKing.com, and she's in seminary as well. My two boys love trains, cars, airplanes, and dinosaurs—especially if they are built with LEGO.

I'm really into my hobbies, mostly involving trains. I'm building a backyard garden railroad, which involves skills ranging from landscaping to electronics to modeling. We're part of the Sacramento Valley Garden Railway Society, of which I'm a board member.

No matter if I'm attending a conference, spending time with my family, or chasing trains, I always love to take photos. You can see more of what I've been up to on Flickr.

You can also connect with me on Twitter or Facebook (although I reserve Facebook for people I know personally).
