Benjamin Hensel

Indianapolis, IN, US



As a designer, I spend my time planning, contemplating, and creating awesome stuff. All while having my daily caffeine and listening to all that jazz.

Before I was a designer, I was a kid. Then I grew up and became a camp counselor, teaching and looking out for the well being of kids. Seeing children grow up into well rounded, thinking individuals is the mission of my career, and I find passion in designing spaces + places which facilitate learning by inspiring creativity. My professional interests are in educational facilities, museums, and recreational/public works. One of my goals is to become a registered architect, so I may contribute my best effort in creating the experiences which inspire our next generation of innovators.

Outside of design, you may currently find me enjoying my time selling fine clothing, volunteering at The Children's Museum, drinking tea at shops around Indy, or simply gawking at classic cars.
