Meet Ben

Hello, and thanks for visiting my website.

Here’s a little more about me. I am originally from South Dakota but I now live in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago, IL with my wife. I am a digital marketing specialist at SoMe Connect in the West Loop. In my free time, I like to run, listen to music and podcasts, explore the Windy City and cheer on the Cubs.
