Hey! I'm

Ben Lam

I create things for the internet

My focus is on the front end since I love to create an engaging web experience for the user. I've been working as a web developer since 2019, but I still think there is still so much to learn since the user experience is always changing.

About Me


I'm a creator.

It first started with graphic design in college, but I soon realized I'm not good at creating things out of nothing. This lead me to photography and videography which I still do as a hobby.

There are many little things that pushed me towards web development such as managaing and designing a company newsletter, clumsily customizing a Salesforce CRM for a previous employer, and doing QA for a startup.

At the startup, I told them I'm interested in becoming a dev so they told me to take an online course and they'll teach me the rest while working. So after a month of online courses, I became a front end developer in Septebmer 2019.
