A native of the Bay Area, Ben grew up in the heart of the Silicon Valley. After graduating from Bellarmine College Preparatory as a multisport athlete Ben studied computer science at UC Santa Barbara and started his career in the software development / information technology industry. After transitioning into a marketing and sales position he started working as a loan officer for one of the largest direct lenders in the country, and became one of the company’s top producers in Northern California.
