Ben loves creatures. He loves people too. His work explores real feelings and issues through surreal and unique characters and locations.
In 2004, after sharpening his teeth directing snowboard and skateboard movies for years, he made a string of commercials for MTV. Shortly following, he began full-time work as Gonzo legend Hunter S. Thompson's documentarian/writing assistant/photographer. The decade-plus since Hunter’s untimely passing has seen Ben working with Academy award winner Alex Gibney, Wieden + Kennedy, starting a production company, live music series, community space, running a kid’s camp, and getting better at making and eating treats. He lives in Los Angeles and is excited about creating more stuff—branded content, advertisements, music videos, photographs, and narrative stories.
He wants beings all over the universe to feel seen, appreciated, understood, loved, and awesome.
