User Profile: Ben

I am one of the senior engineers here at Pololu. I am involved in many areas of the business, but I primarily oversee product development, website content, and technical support. I graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2001 with a B.S. in Physics, and I have been with Pololu since 2006, though I have been friends with Jan, the company president, since high school (we used to fly RC gliders together off of the Pololu Valley cliffs on the Big Island of Hawaii).

In my free time, I enjoy playing sports with coworkers, snowboarding, and flying (I got my private pilot's license in April, 2014). I am a member of LVBots, where I am the reigning line-following champion.
