About

Driven to Succeed

Who am I?

My name is Ben Van Houten. I am a developer living in Charlotte, North Carolina. I innovate and build apps for the web, Android and Windows Phone.

I am a nerd who will talk for hours with you on anything and everything related to development, innovation, CrossFit, dog training, or whatever you would like to pick my brain about. If I know the subject I will share everything I know on it, if not I am always willing to learn.

I am obsessed with learning, programming, and all around living. My typical day can include anything from a 72 hour programming binge to a high intensity hike in Asheville or a relaxing day paddle boarding at the lake. You can regularly find me working out at Reebok CrossFit in Uptown Charlotte or just hanging out with my husky, Kiba.

  • I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
