When he isn’t in the office, Ben enjoys being outdoors and learning about conservation. “I grew up hunting and fishing with my dad,” Ben says. “I learned from a young age that we have a duty to respect and value wildlife.” Today, Ben enjoys hunting and fishing with his brothers and cousins whenever the opportunity presents arises. He also loves to learn about the pioneers of Western conservation, such as Theodore Roosevelt and Aldo Leopold. If Ben isn’t in the office, he is sure to be found on his father-in-laws farm enjoying the company of Ohio’s diverse wildlife.
As an alumnus of Tiffin University, Ben loves to remain connected with the students and professors who guided him through his undergraduate education. Today, Ben continues to be involved with his alma mater as an adjunct professor and instructor. “Tiffin University was the place that taught me to think critically and where I learned to love the law,” Ben says. “I enjoy working with students and teaching the lessons that I learned when I was on campus.” As a former varsity football player at Tiffin, Ben loves to return to Frost-Kalnow Stadium to watch the Dragons play on Saturday afternoons.
