Meet Ben, Driver Operations Manager

Some refer to Ben as the Invisible Hand

Sitting in an airport during one of his many trips to Minneapolis on a consulting gig, Ben read a Facebook post from Lucas who was promoting the magical opportunity to work at Uber. He took a leap and never looked back. Ben’s a trail blazer and a wild card…no idea is too outrageous, and there is no feat he cannot overcome. Ben is the driver behind Driver Operations. “Every road is an open road, until the road has Uber.” – Ben.

 

In one word: BUENO!

Grew up in: North York

Current Toronto neighbourhood: The Annex

When I’m not working I love to Hit a patio. I live for summer weather!

Typical Uber ride: Most drivers know me… Most Uber rides start with “Hey Mr. Ben!”

When I was nine I wanted to be: An astronaut!

My ultimate vacation getaway would consist of: A hotel that does not have a gym.

Crab Cakes or Bison Short Ribs? Bison Short Ribs for sure! I’m allergic to shellfish, I’ll die if I eat a crab cake.
