"Benjamin is a software engineer, entrepreneur, and professional hip-hop dancer. He enjoys problem-solving and thinking creatively, and uses both to advocate for diversity in STEM. As a software engineer, he has worked at Google, Walker & Company Brands, and beginning this summer, The New York Times. Before developing his passion for tech, Benjamin performed for the Chicago Bulls’ halftime shows and with premier hip-hop dance troupes around the U.S. He also produced a documentary surveying gun violence on the South and West sides of Chicago. From this experience, he developed a strong belief in service and community engagement as the best agent for societal change."
