Before joining the MARKETview team, Ben spent eight years working at Virginia Commonwealth University, most recently as Director of Advising for VCU Honors College. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in History and English, a Master’s in History, and recently finished his Ph.D. in Public Policy and Administration with a concentration in Higher Education and student retention. Prior to working in higher education, he spent four years in the fashion industry helping to design vintage-style denim and reproduction Americana workwear (think overalls and denim shirts).
