About Me

Hi, I'm Ben.

I love music, cartoons, working with kids, and Jesus.

But professionally, I love production. I love making making things work. More specifically, I love making things work well. I love taking good ideas and making them functional. After all, “if the user can’t use it, it doesn’t work” - Susan Drey.

I went into Georgia Tech in the fall of 2013 wanting to get smarter. What I ended up learning was that what I really wanted was to get more creative. Through the wild ride of switching majors as a yearly tradition, I ended up finding Computational Media. This major sought to bridge the technical and creative aspects of design, which parallels my own interests.

I began my career in user experience upon graduation at a company called Ingenious Med, where I currently work. I work on a team of two: myself (a user experience architect) and my boss (the user experience manager). With such a small team, we have to divide the work pretty evenly, which means I'm working on major company initiatives every day. Having such influence over a real application with real users has accellerated my growth more than I could have imagined.

I'm excited to continue to learn and develop my skills, all the while helping users in the process - because at the end of the day, it's all about the users.

Here's a taste of some of my projects that I am particularly proud of.
