Heya! I'm Ben (I am not a cat).
I am a UX and Web Designer in Cincinnati, Ohio. I attended the University of Cincinnati's DAAP design school for Digital Design where I had the opportunity to study a number of disciplines including UX, Web and Motion Design. I interned at a number of places including Crew Creative Advertising in Los Angeles, Lands' End in Wisconsin, and MAYA Design in Pittsburgh before starting my post-graduation career as a Front End User Experience Specialist at Hobsons in Cincinnati. I have since also worked for Top Gun Sales Performance, a small sales training company in Mason, Ohio, as a Web Designer and most recently in the Commercial Banking Division of Fifth Third Bank as a Contract User Experience Designer.
Outside of work, I am an avid gamer currently enjoying firing off rockets in Overwatch and replaying Final Fantasy XIII and Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. I play board games like Dominion, Pandemic, and Carcassonne. I read the novels of George R R Martin, Chuck Palahniuk, and Stephen King. I enjoy movies like Star Wars, Frozen, and Brazil and watch TV shows like Game of Thrones, The X-Files, Doctor Who, and The Americans. I also just adopted a cat. His name is Hamish. That's him on the left.
I would love to hear from you with any awesome opportunities for a skilled, creative, and insightful UX and Web Designer. If you'd like to know more, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
