"She said yes."

Ben grew up outside Chicago, eating deep-dish pizza and rooting for the Cubs. In 2005, the then Captain of the Illinois All-State Debate Team moved to Washington, D.C. to attend The George Washington University where he would eventually meet Julie and fall in love.

Harboring an unbridled interest in technology from a young age, Ben quickly found a natural fit in the world of government IT, before moving to his current role where he seeks to make the software industry safer.

When not “computering”, he shares his love for cooking and wine with Julie (he holds a level 3 certification from the Wine and Sprit Education Trust), and is learning to play golf, albeit unsuccessfully.
