My name, as you’ve clearly guessed from the url, is Benjamin Alan Golden. I’m a Product Manager in Denver Colorado. My Ancestors hail from the mighty Mississippi, but I grew up in Durango Colorado from the age of ten. I love Colorado deeply, and can’t really imagine living anywhere else permanently.
I enjoy the luxury of many hobbies. I play video games on occasion, and strongly prefer those with immersive atmosphere, an emphasis on story telling, and rich characters. I’ve played Magic the Gathering in one form or another since I was 13, and thoroughly expect to continue for the rest of my life. I practice yoga, sometimes very religiously, and strongly prefer Kundalini. I own a 16′ Cataraft and while multi-day rafting is a new hobby, it is the one I am most passionate about presently.
One time I tried to build a video game with a team of friends, we got as far as a very playable and fun Beta. I’m a big fan of the Firefly series, and occasionally work on some code that translates common english to the dialect used in the show, it’s pretty limited at the moment, but give it a few years worth of random acts of boredom. My github has some random stuff on it.
