Hi, my name is Ben. I’m a systems-focused product designer who codes, teaches, and bakes.
I operate Make Things Studio, an interactive consultancy working with businesses, non-profits, and schools to define & realize business goals on the web.
My teaching emphasizes a people-centered design process, the importance of business in design, and the wide breadth of knowledge needed as a product designer.
Baking bread clicks with my love of process. Starting from the same four ingredients, slight tweaks to my process can create different outcomes. Baguettes versus a boule, sour versus earthy. I’m drawn to baking by possibilities created by those four ingredients, and the impact that changes in the process can have on those outcomes.
