Hi! I’m Ben, or B-san. I work at Automattic, as a Community Education Manager in the open-source WordPress project.
I’m a Christian, a husband, and a “father” to an adorable puppy Forte. I was born in Australia, but have lived pretty much my whole life in Japan.
This blog is a space where I share personal events happening in my life. My Treasure Box series is a collection of particularly special memories I’m keeping a record of so that I can come back and reflect on in future.
Thanks for stopping by!
