Founder & CEO
As Founder & CEO Ben is focused on the overall company strategy and constantly elevating WINTR’s expertise as a leading provider of User Experience.
Since founding the company in 2009, Ben has relied on his initial intent - the simple principle to bring thinking and making closer together. His vision is built on this perspective and extends across people, process and product.
Prior to founding WINTR, Ben was Partner & SVP Creative Strategy for PunchStock as well as UpperCut Images, then acquired by Getty Images in 2007. An early content creator, he lead global creative, production and distribution of stock media by creating a progressive, distinctive visual style and a web-based platform empowering creators and licensors.
He serves on the Board of Advisors for The Communication Leadership Program at The University of Washington and the Seattle Interactive Conference. He is also active in the startup community as an investor and advisor.
Ben studied Anthropology & Economics and graduated top of his class from The University of Washington. His early interests and pursuits in skateboarding, snowboarding and indie rock and the skate culture of the late 80’s and early 90’s ultimately inspired him to make a career in design.
Taylor is a creative for people, focused on designing purposeful solutions to modern communication challenges. She has utilized this approach for brands including Marc Jacobs, Corbis and Nike. Taylor takes compliments and critique well and would one day like to MC an awards show.
