We didn't just hire our next Meet the Team subject for his excellent coding skills, we needed to complete the Quick Left bluegrass band! Ben Lewis rounds out our musical staff with the fiddle. We're sure Ben learned his music skills while growing up with his organic grocer parents or perhaps when he became an organic farmer himself. Either way, we're excited to add Ben to the team and glad he can put his nimble fingers to use on the (computer) keyboard!
