In previous lives, Ben was an outdoor educator and wilderness trip leader; a substitute teacher; a carpenter; and a subsidized housing compliance analyst. He was drawn to Revision in order to gain the satisfaction and career path of meaningful work in the renewable energy field.
Ben has been a member of the Revision team since late 2012 and has filled roles in the warehouse, fleet management, and installation teams. He attended SMCC to pursue his electrical license, ultimately passing the Journeyperson test in late 2016, as well as the Master Electrician test in late 2019. Another recent transition has brought him to REEAP as a program coordinator, where he will be supporting apprentices along their dual sided journey of field experience and book-based learning.
Ben and his partner Abby live in a small house in Portland with their two young boys. Their house was insulated in 2015, the PV landed in late 2017, and the heat pump installed in early 2018.
