I'm Ben.

I live in the Missouri Ozarks and work remotely as a Front-End Development Manager at a large technology consulting company. I love working with modern web frameworks (especially React and React Native) to create engaging user experiences for our clients, and exceptional developer experiences for our team. I've been working on the web since I was in high school in the late 90's, and I'm excited about where the journey has taken me.

I'm a husband and father to an incredible family. My wife has a blog about our Christian faith and all the books she's reading at AwaitingTheKing.com, and she's also a graduate of The King's University. My kids love trains, dinosaurs, Lord of the Rings, and Minecraft—especially if they are built with LEGO.

I'm really into hobbies such as electronics, metalworking, and landscaping—which all tie back to my interest in trains. I've been involved with HO scale, G-scale garden railroading, and 7-1/2" gauge live steam trains. I occasionally post videos of these things on my YouTube channel.
