I love email. This is the most consistent and reliable way to reach me. My email address is:

benratkey [AT] gmail [DOT] com

If you send a message there, I will definitely see it (as long as it doesn't get caught by a spam filter). I usually reply to personal emails within a day or two.


My Twitter handle is @BenRatkaj.

In the past, I used Twitter a lot. Nowadays, it's a less reliable way to reach me. But if you contact me on Twitter, I'll probably see it eventually.

Text Messages and Phone Calls

This is the contact method with the lowest latency; I respond pretty quickly to text messages.

You can have my phone number if we're friends. Just ask!


I don't spend much time hanging out on Discord, but if you DM me there I will probably see your message.

You can become friends with me on Discord by connecting with me through another channel first.

Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok

These are not good ways to contact me.
