Hey there 👋

I’m Benny, a forward-thinking experience designer with a proven record of overseeing the creation of design solutions and patterns on behalf of robust enterprise-scale product portfolios. I promote innovative, user-centered processes throughout planning and development to achieve alignment and transform how brands relate to their core customers. 

My wife and I are avid cyclists who enjoy getting out in the woods when we can with our daughter, Zayda Maple. I’m also into homebrewing, crate digging, and gaming. My extracurricular design is often playful and pulls from pop culture or tries to capture a particular moment in my own life.

I'm always interested in taking about the future of design, how technology can best benefit humanity, and work that is community oriented or with not-for-profits. Let's talk about opportunities to collaborate.
