Hi! I'm Ben!

I'm a Software Engineer living in Cleveland, OH. I'm all about solving problems and delivering solutions.

I'm one of the creators of Campion, an edge-deployed, circuit-breaking middleware that helps distributed architectures fail gracefully. In the face of a service failure, Campion enables continued functionality for the rest of the system.

Read our case study here.

Campion is an edge-deployed, circuit-breaking middleware that helps distributed architectures fail gracefully.

Campion integrates quickly into the request/response cycle between a network service or external API and the rest of the system. It tracks the success and latency of every response from the protected architectures. Should the service fail or become overloaded, Campion 'flips', cutting off traffic to the failed service, and protecting the rest of the system from cascading failure.

Campion can be deployed on either Cloudflare or AWS.

About Me

My ability to quickly adapt and excel has allowed me to thrive in a wide variety of skills and industries. I've co-founded a bakery in the heart of NYC, worked as an ASE-certified mechanic, and managed the wine program and service staff for multi-million dollar restaurants.

My Software Engineering experience is similarly diverse. I'm comfortable with a variety of languages (Javascript ES6, Ruby, SQL), frameworks (React/Redux, Rails, Express), databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, DynamoDB, KV),and cloud providers, such as AWS (SDK, Cloudfront, [email protected], DynamoDB) and Cloudflare (Workers, KV).

Over the course of my career, I’ve honed a keen eye for detail, an aggressive, pro-active approach to problem-solving, and a ‘casually professional’ approach to team dynamics.

Likewise, my software development philosophy is people-centric, which means writing code and developing systems that are resilient, easy to maintain, and most importantly, built with an eye towards the overall team goals.
