As much as Ben likes riding his bike solo, he also enjoys riding with his wife on their tandem. Together, Captain and Stoker have explored the less-traveled roads of Ireland, Nova Scotia, Italy, and France. When not off the beaten path, Ben and his co-pilot like noodling around town visiting the farmers’ markets and seeking out the perfect macchiato.
From the time he fearlessly tore down, and mostly put back together, his first radio, Ben has been solving technical problems around the house and throughout the industry. When it comes to technology, Ben is a natural. Whether he’s tweaking his in-home sound system, building a better birdbath, or designing and wiring ceramic lights to his front door, Ben is constantly inventing and enhancing his family’s home environment.
Wailing on a Hammond organ or harmonizing at the piano, Ben has a history in music that includes playing in Bay Area bands and roadying with some of the greats. He’s also one of the few people around who can not only play music, but can repair all the instruments too. Ben has played many gigs, but there’s one he will never forget—when the young barmaid at the club fell head-over-heels for the talented piano man.
