I'm Ben Henson,

A Web Developer specializing in WordPress builds. I work remotely from Cincinnati, OH. hippo is my freelance identity.

When I'm not building sites, I like exploring new places with my wife and our two sons, hiking, camping, cooking, going to baseball and soccer (Go FCC!) games, and snapping pics of our adventures.

I studied Urban Planning at the University of Cincinnati and served a number of communities before switching career tracks. The name hippo comes from this guy, not this one. We share a passion for cities and grids.


What I Do for You

Build. Using modern languages, libraries, frameworks and skill, I build responsive sites that look great on all devices and custom content management systems that make them easy to keep updated.

Host. You've got better things to do than worry about DNS settings and server downtime. I utilize baller AWS technology to host and monitor my sites, and take the load off your shoulders.

Maintain. Over time, your business, your customers, your competitors and you will change. Fads and features come and go and you want your site to evolve and stay as fresh as you are. Say no more fam.

Help. Building something on your own or having an issue with your existing site? Don't worry, it happens. Give me a shout.

Partner. I'm looking for a talented Designer to join forces with. If you dream in RGB, let's chat!
