Having grown up in Atlanta, choosing to attend the University of Georgia was an easy decision for Ben. After receiving a business and marketing degree from UGA’s Terry College of Business School, he pursued his dream of big wave surfing with a move to Hawaii. It was there that he worked for Discovery Land Company’s premier private community, Kukio, which is home to some of Hawaii’s finest luxury real estate.

Like so many, Ben grew up vacationing along 30A and will be the first to tell you that some of his best memories were made along this stretch of coast. He considers it a great honor to take part in seeing others come alive to all that Alys Beach has to offer.
