Ben is a recent graduate from the University of Oregon. Having grown up in nearby foothills, Seattle and the greater Pacific Northwest is home. Climbing and building in trees from a young age led to an interest in structures, environment and placemaking. In addition to a bachelor’s of Architecture, Ben’s background as a small business owner designing and screen printing custom t-shirts along with building various small projects allows for a thought process that crosses between disciplines. As a full time architectural intern, Ben is embarking on a journey to explore small but impactful improvements for the built and natural environments. In his time away from the office, Ben humors his passions for graphic design, playing live music and attempting to build his next piece of furniture.
