Ben brings over 10 years of diverse project experience and a strong interest in community development and design to DJR. Fascinated by how cities grow, he believes that each building project can add vitality to its urban environment. On the AIA Housing Advocacy committee he helps promote quality design in projects related to affordable housing and homelessness. When he is not thinking about design, Ben is thinking about winning on the soccer field. His team has played in tournaments as far away as Vancouver and Cologne, Germany.
