Growing up in New York City did not afford many chances to get out skiing, but when it did those opportunities were typically on the hallowed ice sheets of Hunter Mountain. As the venerable Johnny Drama said, "If you can ski Hunter Mountain, you can ski anywhere".
The call of bigger mountains, softer snow, and fatter skis lured Ben to the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!). Boulder offered a stellar education, a burgeonging (now blossomed) tech community, and close proximity to many a powder day.
Ben has spent time in his career as a front-end developer, back-end engineer, systems architect, engineering manager, CTO, sales guy, and all things in-between, primarily in the Financial Services and Fintech world.
After enjoying a four-year stint in Sydney, Australia (where his daughters acquired perfect Australian accents), Ben and his family recently relocated back to the US. Ben currently lives in Snowmass, CO with his wife, two daughters, and dog - Milo the Powder Hound. On most days you'll find him either hanging with the family, staring at a computer screen, or changing elevation in the local mountains on two feet, two skis, or two wheels.
