Using his background in Ethical Philosophy and his Master's in Business Administration, Benjamin worked as an independent restaurant coach and counsel.

Benjamin's culinary capacities aside, his true passion was building, guiding, and developing teams and positive workplaces.

Additionally, he enjoys helping potential employers see the diamond in the rough. He also relishes in working with employers looking for a unique person for a unique position and hunting unicorns.
