Facilities and Maintenance Manager
Ben was raised in Houston, Texas and attended Loyola University in New Orleans. Being lured by the Pacific Northwest, he moved to Portland in 2000. He brings a diverse set of skills to PHFS including technology consulting, financial services, agriculture, construction, maintenance and facility management. Previously serving as the maintenance manager for elderly residents at a residential care facility, allowed Ben to care for a vulnerable population.
Having spent years volunteering for various civic, community and arts organizations, he recognized the crisis faced by our homeless population in Portland and felt a calling to offer his services to a non-profit using innovative approaches to the challenges we face. He feels great satisfaction serving others in our community and is grateful to be working with such a dedicated and compassionate team to serve our families.
In his spare time Ben enjoys woodworking, gardening, cooking and technology tinkering. He recently became an uncle for the first time and loves spending time with his family and friends.
