Ben is a driven entrepreneur at heart with a passion to make an impact in the world. Ben founded his first company in high school called Aspect, selling organic athletic apparel throughout California. After working as a financial analyst in San Francisco, Ben decided to found his second company during his sophomore year of college, Soul id, developing a social network dedicated to athletes. Ben was selected as a member of the Thiel Summit as one of the top entrepreneurs under the age of 20 in the world.

Since the start of Soul id, Ben has won the Chico Business Concept Competition along with the annual North State Future Four Business Competition. He is a recipient of the Rawlins award, the CSU Chico Entrepreneurship Leader award, and was recently awarded Entrepreneur of the Year by Innovate North State. Soul id has now grown to a team of 20 people and ranked as one of the fastest growing brands in the action/adventure sports industry by NBC.

Recently Ben noticed entrepreneurs struggling with creative solutions and decided to create Sampsonite Designs. The creative firm offers solutions ranging from app development to photography and maintains a focus on transforming the way we communicate.
