Ben Hamelin


I’m a Drupal Engineer, which means on any given day I’m writing custom code, developing site architecture, testing website functionality, reviewing code, or evaluating and contributing to Drupal projects.

I started building websites in 2003 using ColdFusion, working for a boutique marketing agency in Lake Placid, NY. During my time there we adopted Drupal as our CMS of choice, and I led a team focused on the tourism, hospitality, healthcare, and non-profit sectors. I worked on a wide variety of projects, from personal blogs to enterprise level web solutions. I love partnering with clients to evolve their online solutions, and building software that solves problems.

I try to unplug as much as possible. Living in the Adirondacks affords us endless opportunities to camp, hike, bike, paddle, ski, and my personal favorite - fish. I love spending time with my wife and 3 kids, hanging with friends, and playing music at our weekly jam (unplugged of course).

I love it when the entire team is at the office together.

Phish rocks my world.

The place I most want to visit someday is Alaska.

Scrabble is my favorite board game.
