After nearly two decades in the wilderness known as "not Texas", Ben and his family moved from central Pennsylvania back to Texas in 2018 so he could take an engineering job at Lockheed Martin in Grand Prairie. Born and raised in Little Rock, AR, Ben is a graduate of Baylor (2000) and University of Washington (2004). A rugged indoors man, Ben enjoys reading, gaming, cooking & grilling, and having long nerdy conversations about theology. He has been married to Yoanna since 2003 and they have two kids. They live in Flower Mound.
