About Me

My name is Ben and I have been building websites as a hobby for more than 15 years. A few years ago I realized I could make a real difference helping local businesses build their online presence and created Dirt River Design.

My goal is to help ensure businesses have a local option to create a nice website at a fair price. Many national competitors pray on the average consumer’s lack of knowledge. The practice is unethical, and I want to give you the option to work with someone that has  your best interest in mind. When you work with me I do not lock you into long term contracts. Upon completion of the project I provide everything you need to walk  away with your website.  I have face to face meetings with my clients  and give you as much power over your site as you desire.

Personal History

I grew up on a farm in North Dakota and have degrees in Electronics and Geology. After completing my degree at the University of North Dakota, I worked as a research scientist for about five years. Like many in the region, I was pulled West and worked as a Geologist in the oil field. The rotating schedule allowed me to start Dirt River Design and once things slowed down web design became my primary income for four years. Now I split my time working with automation and web design.  

History of Dirt River Design LLC

Dirt River Design has existed since the end of 2014,  but the idea was a long time coming.  More than once I had coworkers and friends push me toward starting a web development company.  My previous hobby sites all were built with the idea that they needed to be self supporting. I do not keep anything online that cannot support its own operating cost.  While working in the oil field I decided it  was time to turn my hobby into a career, and started to put real effort into getting Dirt River Design off the ground. I continue working to grow my client base, and I look forward to working with you.
