Ben is an information architecture intern with IU Communications. He’s fairly new to the field, but after taking a few information architecture courses in his graduate program, he’s ready to jump right in and start putting the skills he’s acquired to use. He graduated from IU with his B.S. in informatics in 2016 and then went on to work in IT for a year before deciding to come back to school and pursue master’s degrees in information science and library science through the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering’s dual-degree program. In his free time, he loves to play his guitars and make music with other people, work on his podcast, ride his bike, play games of both the video and tabletop varieties (especially Magic: The Gathering), and read sci-fi and fantasy novels. He will also talk your ear off about Star Wars for hours if you let him.

I’ll be happy doing what I do as long as I’ve got something to show for it at the end of the day.
