I’m Ben. Ben Norkin, if you're not into the whole brevity thing. I joined Studio Upwall in May 2018 after four years at another local firm where I specialized in single family residential construction. Before that I was a graduate student at The Catholic University of America and before that I was an officer in the US Navy.

I've been a dad for two and a half years, a project architect for five years and a Caps fan for ± 32 years.
