"Fatherhood is working for myself and showing my son he can do the same." Ben Carlson
Ben grew up in rural Minnesota where he spent the majority of his free time around his grandparents farms.
Armed with a high school diploma, a few credits from a technical college and a desire to learn and better himself he taught himself how to program in PHP and In 2000 he turned his love of programming into a job building custom websites back in Minnesota, for a failed startup during the dot-com bust.
After missing a few paychecks at the startup, he went to work for Dennis Kirk, Inc. and ran the development team which took the site from $900k/year to $36MM/year. Ben lives with his son in Frisco, Texas
