About me


Gravatar of Ben Clark

I am Director of Product Infrastructure at Jackson River. My wife Maggie and I live in Sarasota, Florida.

A brief history

I went to Florida State University (Tallahassee, Florida, USA), where I earned BS and MS degrees in Information Studies. I briefly attended Indiana University School of Library and Information Science (Bloomington, Indiana, USA) where my research interests focused on online journals (blogs).

While in college, I worked at FSU’s College of Social Sciences as a web developer. After graduation, I was hired on to be the Coordinator of Information Services.

In 2010, I started working at Jackson River as a Drupal developer. In 2013, I was promoted to Manager of Development Operations.

In 2015, I accepted a Technical Account Manager position at Acquia. In February 2016, I re-joined Jackson River as Director of Product Infrastructure.

About this site

I’ve been keeping a minimal web presence at benclark.com since I registered it in 1999. It’s gone through several iterations: a blog powered by Movable Type, a Wordpress blog, a Drupal blog, and now a Jekyll site hosted via S3.

Elsewhere in the tubes

I use my Facebook account for keeping in contact with family and close friends. My Twitter gets more usage, and I tend to post or retweet things related to my day job (e.g. Drupal development, devops). Like everyone, I have a LinkedIn profile.

I occasionally post photos to my Flickr photostream.
