O&M Specialist, Access Technology Instructor

An O&M specialist working with individuals ranging from school-aged youth to seniors, Ben brings a wealth of experience in Structured Discovery techniques. Ben enjoys witnessing his students’ family, friends, and/or caregivers take pride in their growth, which positively changes their perspectives and reinforces the student’s learning. He believes that independent travel is the most difficult aspect of blindness training for many individuals because they are discouraged from initiating their own travel. He is working to help change that. As an AT trainer,  Ben brings not only his enthusiasm but also a strong expertise in nonvisual technology skills. Outside of work, Ben loves spending time with his wife and two daughters. His hobbies include listening to classical music, reading books, trying different coffee recipes, and taking walks.
