Before joining Devbridge, Ben worked for The Field Museum, Torque and Rise Interactive. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Columbia College in Chicago and now wants to put his talents to work to design better, faster, and more intuitive experiences for users. To do his work he uses Sketch, Adobe Creative Cloud and SCSS and makes sure to stay updated on the newest techniques for those programs.
In addition to work, Ben spends time reading, traveling, and playing music. He’s been a drummer for 17 years, and has even had the opportunity to perform live at the Metro in Chicago. Of all the places he’s traveled, Curacao and London were his two favorite.
