Meet Ben Shea!
Ben Shea is a systems engineer for Raytheon Missiles & Defense. His time at Raytheon has been nothing short of exciting, as his classified work has brought him some of his fondest memories and some of his toughest challenges. His dreams of one day becoming a pilot came to an end when he was diagnosed with a condition preventing him from pursuing that career. He then decided to take his talents to the University of Alabama in Huntsville, where he took his passion for aerospace in a different direction. Now he gets to work indirectly in the air, while enjoying taking flight in his down time. Aside from his time at work Ben flies planes, plays instruments, and runs ultramarathons (50 miles of running or more). He enjoys running the trails along the mountain and through Cummings Research Park.
