My name is Ben Markowitz. I'm a designer living and working remotely just outside of Harrisonburg, VA.

About Me

Born and bred in the wilds of the Shenandoah Valley, I attended college at nearby James Madison University earning majors in both Computer Science and Media Arts & Design (Interactive Multimedia).

After college I took my talents to Richmond, VA with stints at Circuit City; working on their national eCommerce website, and Royall & Company; a higher education focused marketing agency where I worked with some of the finest colleges and universities across the country.

In 2010 I moved back to the valley and entered the world of remote work when I joined the Washington, D.C. office of Huron Consulting. There I worked on an agile research & development team building a machine learning based document discovery platform.

In 2011 I joined Intridea, a Washington, D.C. based software design and engineering firm. I honed my skills working directly with clients ranging from small startups to large companies like ADP, Amazon, and the National Fish and Wildlife foundation.

Since 2016 I’ve been with Protenus in Baltimore, MD where we’re building a best-in-class Healthcare Compliance Analytics platform used by hosptials across the country. We’re tackling imporant problems like patient privacy and drug diversion.

I live and work remotely just outside of Harrisonburg, VA with my wife, children, and two dogs.


I have more than a decade of experience working professionally as a designer and have developed a diverse skillset.
