Prior to working at PMI, Ben spent significant time living abroad in China and South America, and was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mozambique. He completed a Master’s program in Buddhist Studies and Social Ethics from Harvard Divinity School and currently also teaches courses in philosophy, religion, and ethics at local community colleges.
Ben’s meditation practice has evolved over the past decade, mainly within the Zen tradition.
A native of New England, Ben enjoys the dramatic changes of season. He is frequently in the woods, hiking up a mountain with his partner Caroline, or sprawled out reading a book.
