Ben isn’t a Harvard Graduate or a member of Mensa. He’s just a down-to-earth guy who loves solving problems, finding a better way and making things as simple as possible for his customers.
He credits his success to a childhood that encouraged exploration and gave him the confidence to go after his goals, without going through the usual study or career journey.
In some ways Ben is still a child. He’s excited by clever techniques and designs and ideas. And he gets a buzz from tipping things on their head or rearranging pieces of the seemingly impossible to create wonderful new possibilities.
