Ben Brown

A Kitchener-born maker in an epic quest for truth and fun.

Ben is a computer guy, web developer, community volunteer and organizer – but not necessarily in that order. He likes to see awesome things happen in Waterloo Region and does his best to help make them a reality.

He’s a co-founder and was a longtime director of Kwartzlab Makerspace in Kitchener, and has helped organize other local maker events in the past, including SoOnCon and Waterloo Mini Maker Faire 2013. He was also a Trustee with the KW Awesome Foundation, who gives away $1,000 every couple months to cool and interesting local projects.
