About me

Hi!

I'm Ben Bassett, hailing from Tolland, Connecticut. I'm currently pursuing my further education, but am often taking on new projects to hone my skills. I enjoy finding definitively elegant solutions to complex problems, then incorporating them into simple, beautiful and intuitive designs.

I don't know everything. Who does? Nevertheless, I'm passionate about and invested in the projects I pursure, and am always willing to learn a new skill or tackle an unfamiliar challenge.

    When it comes to Benjamin Bassett you will find very few students with the skillset, understanding, passion, and most importantly work ethic that he has toward learning. Ben has a desire to know God's creation in as many ways as possible and works diligently studying to learn as much as possible about the world we live in and its many aspects.
