Hi, I’m Ben

I’m a Software Engineer at Meta. I’m currently working on Horizon Worlds.

Before Meta, I worked at Airbnb on the i18n team. We expanded Airbnb.com to 32 new countries, added support for right-to-left, 4-byte unicode, and more. You can read about it on the Airbnb engineering blog.

Before Airbnb, I was the co-founder and CTO of an e-commerce wine company. We participated in the Y Combinator Winter 2015 batch.

I began my professional career at Microsoft, briefly on the Office Graphics platform, and then for nearly four years on making Windows Server smaller.

Before then, I worked on numerous personal projects and business ventures, and built the online presence for companies including Roessner & Co., The Walsh Company, Marisol, and more.
