Buying his first home at the age of twenty and partnering on many more gave Ben a firsthand glimpse into real estate trends, creative financing, steep equity gains and a subsequent deep recession. In 2011 Ben went to work as a Business Development Professional in the Northern Nevada Mining Market where he fell in love with the industry. Ben was heavily involved with the NV Mining Association and was working with some of the largest and most sophisticated open pit and underground mining operations in the US, if not the world.
