Ben was born in Rapid City, South Dakota and raised in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. In 1997 he bought a one-way ticket to Missoula to attend the University of Montana, where he received an Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps scholarship and majored in forestry. After graduating he spent five years as an active duty Army officer and served two tours in Iraq.

Ben moved back to Missoula in 2006 and worked for the Montana Department of Natural Resources before joining the UM Foundation. For Ben, this job is a homecoming, and he feels honored to serve the mission of the college and make a difference. Ben and his partner spend most of their time doing their best to keep up with their five-year-old son while enjoying all that Montana has to offer.
