I am dissatisfied with the status quo and am always looking for true and deep life in the simple things. If I were to write a book… 1/4 of it would be about adventure, 1/4 about family, 1/4 about business, and 2/3 would be about freedom.
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. A son, brother, husband for 13 years, and father of 6 - five that are living. I am returning to the roots of my great great grandfather and his father by living in Kentucky.
I was working construction until I ended up waiting tables at Red Robin. Learned how to beat the game of blackjack in 2001 and spent 9 years playing, running a team, managing investors and starting a website that trains people how to count cards. There was a documentary made about it. Co-founded Epipheo in 2008 with the vision of “Revealing truth in a way that changes people’s lives”. I am currently a partner and board member representing our core values: “Truth, Story, & Love.”
I enjoy writing, tattoos, Mount Rainier, training my children, being in the presence of wise counsel, investing in people and advising, creating and gardening, the pursuit of God, and strawberry shortcake.
There are many different places to find me. I’m skeptical about the value of social media yet you can still find me on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. The best way to contact me directly is to email me at Ben@Crawfordlife.com.
