Hello, I'm Ben and this is my website; a place to publish things that I am involved with or interested in. These days that is mostly software - but I still find time for snowboarding, gardening, reading, writing, and art. A lot of my recent work involves data visualization. If you have anything to say, feel free to get in touch.
Layers is an app I made that allows people to overlay maps in their browser and blend them like image layers in Photoshop. This app enables users to explore geographic data to research questions like "Where should I buy a house?" or "Where should I go out tonight?" I am currently working on adding more features and maps.
I recently designed Window Pods, a beautiful indoor gardening product. Window Pods are flower pots that attach to your window - saving space and increasing sunlight to plants. They finished on KickStarter and are moving to retail.
Focus is a cross-platform app that I wrote with Angular and Cordova. My goal was to create a friendly space to perform N-Back brain training without the pattern-recognition games prevalent in mainstream brain-training apps.
My newest project is Thyme, a quantified-self app. Thyme visualizes health, fitness, and work data - helping users to allocate their time better, work smarter, and focus on the things that matter to them.
