Who I am
Hello, my name is Ben (he/him). I’m a UX Engineer with a side order of music & audio. I thrive in the intersection between digital and social systems.
I started in the industry as a front-end developer at a creative agency. Since completing my degree in Interactive Digital Media at Drexel University, I have expanded my skillset to include UX research, design and front-end dev. I have put my expertise to the test as a developer/designer in public works, non-commercial radio, and fintech.
What I’m looking for
The best use of my skills is designing for usability, accessibility and overall experience. Bonus points if a project involves audio.
Whether that entails qualitative interview sessions, Figma wireframes, or React apps—I’m prepared to ask questions, abandon my ideas, and collaborate with cross-functional teams to improve digital products and experiences.
In addition to my UX Engineering skills, I am also a strong writer, audio engineer and radio producer.
Research: usability sessions, qualitative interviews, survey design, A/B testing (feature flags), playtesting card sorting, collaborative design, client discovery sessions, and more.
Design: wireframing, prototyping, UI design, typography/color and component systems, and more.
Front-end Development: React/Angular/Vue, HTML/CSS/JS (I saw the rise and fall of jQuery), progressive web apps, static site generators, email blasts, content management systems, and a very solid understanding of git (more than most UX folks).
A bit of personality
In my spare time, I enjoy baking breads and desserts, recording music, and swing dancing (come say hi in Rittenhouse Square whenever COVID is over…).
