About Me


Hi, I’m Ben, a friendly web developer for Up&Up in Greenville, SC. In my free time I enjoy biking, hiking, gardening, exploring Greenville, learning new things, and hanging out at our awesome public library.

I create fun, innovative, accessible, and fast websites. This includes award-winning front-end development as well as building out custom Drupal and Wordpress backends with an eye towards usability.
