Good day. My name's Ben. I'm a Partner at Barrel Strength Design and Product Lead of the Sprout Plugin Suite for Craft CMS.

I work with Craft daily and enjoy training companies, content editors, and other designers and developers on how to get the most out of Craft. My firm specializes in helping businesses migrate to Craft CMS with our service The Great Migration, maintaining and providing support for existing Craft CMS websites, developing Craft sites from scratch (from content architecture to custom plugins and integrations).

On the side, I curate, write articles, and host events on Straight Up Craft – a website dedicated to Craft CMS education – and other pastimes include reading history, swing dancing, and, now and then, writing Animal Songs for Strong Children!

If you'd like to talk shop or share some ideas, reach out and say: "Hello"!
