My name is Ben! I am a leader, a strategist, a marketer, a graphic designer, a creative thinker, a husband to a beautiful wife (Cora), and the owner of a frustratingly intelligent dog (Zeus). Thanks to some "encouragement" from my hyper-motivated brother-in-law, I also (begrudgingly) trained for and completed my first Ironman 70.3 triathlon last September (it actually was really satisfying).
I graduated top of my class (summa cum laude) with a BS in Marketing from Oral Robert's University. Most recently, I worked as the Director for Short-Term Missions at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. My background of business education and non-profit experience have proven to be the perfect foundation for this role of mobilizing over 2,000 missionaries to 80+ locations across the globe. Through this role I have gained significant managerial, administrative, and logistical experience. Check some of that out here!
I also do graphic and web design. What began as a hobby and creative outlet for me personally has quickly sharpened into an extremely valuable and practical professional tool. You can check out some of my work here.
My wife and I just moved to MICHIGAN, where we are excited to lay some deep roots, live closer to family, and have snow be a part of our lives again!
