What people say behind my back:

"Nothing escapes his keen analytical gaze... He has immersed himself in an incredible volume of seemingly-dry historical sources and not only wrestled them into a clear and well-structured piece of writing, but also condensed them into a pithy but substantial interpretive formula... articulated with flair." 

"Having such a broad impact on the course of a project takes skills ranging from communication and vulnerability – such as reaching out for help when stuck understanding something – to the technical aptitude needed to understand and master range of difficult tools, from Amazon Web Services to python and the mathematics and statistics needed to make sense of machine learning. "

"As a full-stack designer, Ben paid meticulous attention to every facet of the user experience. He fully grasped the essence of my brand and services, enabling us to create a site that was not only innovative and user-friendly but also resonated with my vision."
