About Me

Ben Amis is a New Media & Web Development student at BCIT, Vancouver. Beginning the program in April 2016 Ben has developed a strong interest in the development side of the program, more specifically JavaScript. Ben comes from an IT background as he previously worked for a consulting firm in Tokyo. His biggest achievement was completing the office 365 upgrade project with Google as this was an 18 month multi-million-dollar project resulting in creating over 300 jobs for Tokyo.

Originally from Leeds, England Ben grew up in a family run Hotel with his Mother, Father and 2 Sisters. Upon completing high school Ben began travelling where he visited Australia, America, Japan and several places in Europe. After several years of working as an IT Consultant in England and Japan Ben moved to Vancouver with his long-term partner where he began the BCIT New Media program.

Moving forward Ben plans on completing the New Media program and finding work as a JavaScript Developer. A little further into the future Ben will purchase a property on the North Shore, marry his girlfriend and start a family of his own.

Ben was previously a volunteer speaker at the American Chamber of Commerce, Tokyo giving talks about “Women in the workplace” and “Sexism in the workplace”. In his spare time Ben plays soccer and regularly hikes with his girlfriend and puppy.
