Growing up in a family of builders, Ben always knew that he wanted to be an Architect. He found a natural appreciation for building structure and design from a young age and attributes that to great admiration and influence of his grandfather. Following his childhood dreams, Ben achieved degrees from Universidad de las Americas, Puebla in Mexico and Clemson University, after which immediately started his career with DP3 Architects.
17 years later, Ben is Principal and VP of Design at DP3, touching most all projects that involve design integration. He finds satisfaction in creating new structures with people in mind, working closely with his team to offer professional insight and guidance throughout the design process. Outside of design, Ben is heavily involved in the athletics of his two teenage sons. He spends most of his free time on the sidelines or on the road, managing the double demands of year-round soccer and baseball travel teams.
