Ben is the Founder and President of Greener Living, Inc. and has been involved in the fields of sustainability, natural and green building, energy efficiency, and renewable energy for over a decade. Though he claims to have started his career in natural building while playing in his sand box as a child, he has since been involved in various building projects around the world. More recently, Ben has received a Certificate in Permaculture and Agroforestry from the Institute of Permaculture in Bahia, Brazil and a Natural Building Certificate from Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Warren, VT. He has also received the United States Green Building Council's LEED AP credential with a specific accreditation in residential homes.

Currently, Ben lives in Burlington, Vermont and serves on the Board of Directors for the Vermont Green Building Network. Additionally, he is one of two representatives from Vermont working with the USGBC's Upper Northeast Regional Council. His web continues to grow as he brings varied and diverse groups of people together over the common bond of sustainability. In addition to his continuing work as a builder, Ben is also consulting businesses on achieving more sustainable profits and operations. Recent projects have included a green remodel project based on the USGBC's ReGreen guidelines and his ongoing consulting work for the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center.
