hey, I'm benjamintd

I am a French engineer who likes maps and hard optimization problems. During the day, I work at Shone and build cool tech for the maritime industry. Previously, I worked at Mapbox turning telemetry data into insights and products. At night, I climb rocks, make music, or ride my bike.

I'm interested in operations research, machine learning, web design, and maps.

My proudest achievements are: hiking to the top of Mount Whitney before 5:30 AM, holding my breath for 3'13', and climbing a V10.
