Politico

Ben Hong’s origin story harkens back to the days when he was a kid building random sites like “Fortune Cookie Universe” on free hosting sites like Angelfire and Geocities. Unbeknownst to him, he was unaware that he could have made a career of it for many years. Shortly after becoming an I/O Psychologist though, he managed to find his way back to his roots and is currently a Senior UI Developer at Politico.

When he’s not learning about some new technology, tinkering on side projects or helping to co-organize various Meetups in the area, you can usually find him on some adventure somewhere exploring the seemingly endless things that life has to offer. So whether it’s a new restaurant, board game, book, podcast or {{ insert something you’re passionate about here }}, odds are very good that he’ll be happy to hear all about it!
