I'm Ben.

I'm a Front-End Architect at Wire Stone in Sacramento, working with AngularJS, React, 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, dinosaurs, and Star Wars—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, LinkedIn, or Facebook (although I reserve Facebook for people I know personally).
