My name is Benedict "Ben" Xavier DeMoras (hence my website benxd.me) and I am definitely not a normal person. That is, unless, normal people are beekeepers, able in the arts, have an interest in sustainability combined with unusually small homes, and have a knack for good design. All my life, I have loved doing and making things with my hands, working to solve the problems which I have probably made more difficult. Once something interests me, I pursue it obsessively until something else takes its place. As such, I have made myself a very busy person. When I happen to have a free moment, I try to escape outdoors.
