Ben grew up in South Carolina and earned a B.S. in Business Management from Clemson University.
Born with a fascination for airplanes and a love of the outdoors Ben pursued the first of those passions by learning to fly at 17, and ultimately retired from American Airlines as a senior captain. And it was through his travels that he discovered the beauty (and bugless, low humidity) of the Western US. He discovered Teton Valley in the late ’90s, shortly thereafter purchased a home here, and began scheming on how to live here full-time.
Ben keeps busy flying a corporate jet, has multiple business interests, piddles with little airplanes, but more than anything enjoys biking and hiking with his wife Joni.
