7 Questions with Ben
What is your role at Social Intelligence?
I am the Marketing Manager for Social Intelligence, which means that it's my job to get the word out about who we are and what we do-- not unlike these questions!
Where would you like to travel to?
I'm very fortunate to have traveled all over the world (I even lived in Kenya for a few years growing up), but I've never had the chance to visit Iceland and I have some serious FOMO about it.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
That's a tricky one... there's so much to be learned out there! If I had to choose, I would learn to speak every language in the world. Just imagine what else you could learn if you had the world as your teacher.
What is your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I have one favorite activity that I suppose you could classify as both indoor and outdoor. I love to sing, anywhere and anytime, but especially when it rains.
What is your favorite aspect of your job?
The best part of being a marketer is the daily privilege of getting to know your own brand. Every time I write something, plan an event, or talk to a customer, I get a little bit closer to the center of who we are as a business. It's a process that gives as much as it takes, and it's not hard to find a moment of joy in that at least once a day.
What did you want your adult profession to be when you were a kid?
When I was a kid I wanted to be a famous actor with side gigs in marine biology, psychology, and international trampolining. Totally attainable, right? I think the dream is still alive in me somewhere.

If you really knew me, you'd know that every moment is an opportunity to quote musical theatre.
