Ben is a native Nebraskan who graduated from The Evergreen State College in the spring of 2018, where he got his degree in Environmental Studies. He gained his interest in the outdoors through childhood trips to Breckenridge, CO, Topsail Island, NC and upstate NY. Despite this, it wasn’t until he spent 30 days mountaineering in the North Cascades National Park that his passion for the outdoors was solidified. Ben is excited to be in Colorado where he gets the opportunity to educate people of all ages about the wonders, importance and complexity of the environment.
Hobbies outside of work include sports, live music and backpacking.
