Ben is originally from Pittsburgh and moved to Colorado to study physics at CU Boulder. Since then, he has engaged in a variety of activities, from teaching skiing to working in a university lab on data mining. After years of searching for something he truly wanted to do, Ben is ecstatic he can finally say he has been with RMP for almost three years working to map all things information. When not working, Ben is most likely either playing music, hiking, skiing, or enjoying/making good food. In essence, he embraces the stereotypical Coloradan lifestyle!
