"More than any other characteristics, I would say Ben is trustworthy and dependable. A creative artist trapped in a techno-geek, or maybe a techie trapped inside a creative. Ben stands up for what he thinks is right, but it doesn’t get in the way of his veracious desire to learn."Thomas Marine - Principal Consultant, MDM Liaison Technologies
