Hi, I'm Ben Ward. I'm a Software Developer based in Maui. My first company, Solis K.K., was one of the first ICANN accredited domain registrars in Japan. My second company, Maneo K.K., was the first social lending company in Japan. After that I created Maui-based Cheqbook, a cloud accounting SaaS that saves small-business owners and bookkeepers 2 weeks a year managing their books. I am currently Vice-President of Engineering at Findery based in San Francisco. Findery is a user-generated-content platform for users to share what fascinates them about places in the world. My passions are Ruby on Rails, React, making, swimming and cycling.
