Hunuvat does not make corporate political contributions. However, for complete transparency, in his personal capacity, Ben is a member of the Barbara Lee for Congress Executive Finance Committee, and actively supports progressive candidates in the Bay Area and across the USA, including Congressman TJ Cox (District 21), Georgia House Congressman Sam Park, Virginia House Delegate Danica Roem, and Stacey Abram’s campaign 2018 for Governor of Georgia and her new voting rights campaign, FairFightAction.com.
Ben was educated at Churchill College, Cambridge University in the United Kingdom.
Ben's other interests include the literature (and particularly the essays) of Aldous Huxley (perhaps the greatest essayist of the 20th century), as well as the genre of speculative fiction - particularly Margaret Atwood (definitely the best English-language writer of our era). And, to the alarm of many of his friends, he is passionate about 80s and 90s British and Swedish electronic pop music, particularly the Pet Shop Boys and anything by Alexander Bard.
