Benjamin Brown is a second-year Government and History major pursuing a certificate in UT's Elements of Computing program. Hailing from the modest beach-side community of Port Aransas, Texas, he has long been enamored with international affairs, American culture, and sociopolitical history. Much of his writing is motivated by a desire to frame issues in a historical or philosophical context. Outside of The Texas Orator, Ben spends his time reading, playing trivia, recreationally studying math, and collecting antiques.
