My name is Ben Hathaway. I’m an engineer and I build software products. I currently serve as the Chief Technology Officer at Mailprotector.

I have a wonderful partner in life. She makes me better in everything I do and is an incredible mom to our three boys. We currently live in the Greenville, South Carolina area but I was born and raised in the Buckeye State.

In addition to building software, I like to stay active. In 2012, when I turned 30, I started running obstacle course races. My first OCR was a Tough Mudder in October of that year and I immediately became hooked. Since then I have run 17 races totaling 146 miles across events like Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, GORUCK Nasty, Superhero Scramble, and the Cooper River Bridge Run. You can see the full list here. My goal is to continue running at least one race every year until my boys are old enough to run them with me. This year my oldest two ran their first Spartan Race so they are getting close.

I also enjoy woodworking, building things, DIY projects, and skiing.
