Benjamin began using WordPress with version 2.7 and has been in love ever since. This romance has grown and taken him to multiple WordPress events all along the West Coast. Benjamin is enthralled with connecting and learning from his fellow WordPress pioneers. Attending WordCamps allows him to explore his passion for WordPress and become better connected with the community. Throughout Benjamin’s career, he has worked with numerous development firms and organizations. He believes everything in the world can be described in code and is a strong advocate for open source software.

Working Pyrotechnic shows is his ideal weekend getaway and he hopes to one day complete his Pyrotechnics license. So next time you see a firework, think of Benjamin, ’cause baby he’s a fiiiiirrewor
