Ben attended high school in Cedar Bluffs, NE then went on to graduate from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a B.S. in Mechanized Systems Management. After college he moved to Seward, NE and now resides in Scribner, NE. As he likes to say, “God Bless Nebraska”. Ben and his wife Salem have a son named Emery, two collie dogs (think Lassie) – Huron and Colt, and four cats – Ashland, Sly Cooper, Koko, and Adelaide. He plays guitar for his church in Norfolk, Nebraska and for his band Catalyze (check them out on Spotify!). Ben also enjoys woodworking and is currently working on his 120 year old house. You can typically find him taking things apart and seeing how they work and shooting firearms. He is a one team sports fan and avidly roots on the Husker Football team.
