Hi, I'm Ben

I am currently an interaction design student in the Master Programme in Interaction Design at Umeå Institute of Design, Sweden. I am interested in tangible interactions, prototyping, and figuring out how to make things work.

Prior to coming to Sweden, I performed software simulation, vehicle testing, and prototype construction for Google's Self-Driving Car project in California.

When I'm not working, I am usually indulging in my passion for commercial aviation. You can usually find me flying around the world, trying out different airlines, sampling different cabins and products.

Say hello!
