About Me

Quick learner, adaptable, problem solver, curious. I strive to know the system, rather than the status quo. I thrive in difficult situations and complex hurdles: problem solving is now second nature to me.

_ Code Ben

In the last two years I've developed from a complete designer to pro software engineer. After countless days of writing code, debugging, testing, building projects, server administration, deployment, CI/CD, etc, I've developed the most vital skill of all: adaptability. The ability to asimilate new knowledge at record pace: the tech industry moves really fast: you either keepup, or fall behind.

Graphic Design

After spending about 5 years in the design industry, I've picked up a few vital concepts about UI/UX design. My design path still sips into my developer life: and I must say, it's the perfect harmony of modern tech. Some of my designs can be found on my 99designs profile.
