We used to call Ben the warehouse guy. He joined us in 1999 as our all-around shipping clerk, receiving clerk, master of the tape gun, and person in charge of the big door in the back. He remains the guy to blame if your order is not properly packed. However, in the last couple of years he’s sneaked into the front of the building where he’s assumed a wide range of new responsibilities, including purchasing. His most recent contributions to the cause are, in his words, “a ton of work on our website.”
Ben is originally from the small town of Mt. Orab (in Southwest Ohio) and is a graduate of U.C. Clermont College. Until very recently he also worked as Projection Manager at a local cinema. (He misses the free movies, but not working weekends and holidays.) He lives with his wonderful wife Lynne, a fellow cat person who he married in 2005. Despite intending to stop at two, they now have four cats: Mavis, Sylvia, Aries, and Jasper. When he's not vacuuming his apartment (four cats!), he also enjoys music and visiting local parks with his wife.
