There’s no WME Without ‘Me’: Introducing Web Developer Ben
This week we’re introducing you to the multi-talented Ben, who is a core member of our development team. Juggling all our internal website development and our larger client profiles, Ben is a coding pro with a cheeky side.
Get to know Ben below.
Name: Ben Koh
Role: Developer Team Lead
A little about myself:
Living the dream, behind the screen, getting paid, what else could be said… The dream is still pretty far off (cue imagery: beach home…), but on track. I currently have the pleasure of leading the geniuses key in turning ideas into reality at NBW – the development arm of WME.
When I’m not at the helm, I’m usually not too far from a good food place (true to my Malaysian roots – eating is a way of life).
When was the first time you heard about the internet?
I was more of a sporty kid growing up, but I do re-call stumbling across something called the ‘world wide web’ in the late 90s.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Being able to talk nerdy and still have people listen! Jokes aside, it brings me great satisfaction contributing to business growth through technology.
Food, music and sports, in that order.
I was training to be a concert pianist. Dream vs reality – reality won this one.
