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.
