Benjamin was born and raised Southern California, one of the few places in the world where you can go snowboarding in the morning and surfing in the afternoon. Despite the amazing weather and unbeatable LA food scene, he got married and moved with his amazing wife to Singapore where they are now taking on the adventure of living as expats.
Benjamin is an avid traveler and adventurer, having visited 30 countries with no plans of slowing down. One of the most meaningful periods of his life was a six-month sabbatical when he traveled the world and hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro and explored the Himalayas surrounding Everest Base Camp along with many other unforgettable adventures across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Benjamin is passionate about nurturing his natural curiosity and thus enjoys listening to podcasts, visiting museums, learning about history or discussing philosophy. A few years ago, he began practicing the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and has been obsessed ever since.
Benjamin graduated from UCLA with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree before finding his way into the world of data analytics at a Big 4 consulting firm. Since then, he has worked multiple roles across the data continuum as a data engineer, visual analytics specialist, project management lead and business analyst. He holds certifications in both Tableau and Alteryx and loves helping clients organize, see and understand their data. His official superpowers include eating leftovers, taking public transportation in foreign countries and sweating when it is least socially acceptable.
