Ben hails from San Antonio, TX. After college he moved to New York City to work in advertising.
After 5 years he decided to move home… and open a restaurant. After years of mopping floors, washing dishes, pulling espresso shots, pouring wine, opening beers, delivering food, and managing restaurants, he partnered with Chef Andrew to open Contigo Austin.
Ben grew up working and hunting at Contigo Ranch in S. Texas. He has an extensive keychain collection. In his free time he is a soccer player, guitar picker, song writer, food appreciator, and one hell of a whistler.
