Episode 003: Ben German – Simplifying Complex Things

"I learned so much by getting it wrong, honestly."

In this episode, Ben and I discuss his very underrated gift of simplifying complex things—spaces, processes, ideas… We talk about how it all started and how he’s using it in life and work today.

Ben German is a British/American immigrant who resides in Charleston, SC with his wife, their two children, and a dog named Deefur. With a background in website design, Ben works with many non-profit organizations to create an online presence that empowers and connects people to drive impact for social good. Living on the east coast, he is especially passionate about aquatic wildlife and is a regular volunteer at his local Aquarium.
