Hello, I'm Ben

I'm co-founder and CTO at Axflow, a YC-backed (S23) company. I was previously the first hire at Privy, working on authentication and end-to-end encryption APIs for data privacy. Before that, I was the tech lead for the data management platform at Cruise, which hosts the data used to train and evaluate models that drive cars.

I moved to the bay area when my first startup was bought by Nextdoor.


Shamir Secret Sharing
TypeScript implementation of Shamir's Secret Sharing algorithm. This project underwent a formal audit by Cure53.
Secure Password Utilities
Utilities for generating secure passwords, passphrases, pins, and more. Part of a larger effort to create a password manager using github pages as a backend.
Apache Superset
I was previously one of the contributors of the Apache Superset project. You can see those contributions here.
Secure data sharing application. Useful for sharing sensitive values (api keys, passwords, etc) with coworkers. Excuse to push LiveView to its limits.
An implementation of the KDL Document Language. I used this as an excuse to play with two things I love, compilers and Elixir.
React Native S3
Upload objects to S3 in React Native without requiring any platform-native dependencies. My most popular OSS library.
