After secretly coveting a life as a performer for 18 years, and unsuccessfully attempting to be a 5'8" professional athlete, Ben auditioned for his high school's musical, "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," during his last semester as a graduating senior. After playing J. Pierrepont Finch, he feverishly devoured the performing arts. He went on to perform in rock bands, improv, sketch comedy shows, films, regional theatre productions, and collegiate theatre where he decided he would pursue acting full-time under the mentorship of Walton Jones (Broadway's "1940's Radio Hour"). Ben was awarded the David Lord Award for Distinguished Contribution to the Performing Arts for his collegiate tenure. After working in finance and accounting as a licensed CPA for nearly a decade while simultaneously working the regional film and theatre circuit, Ben now works full-time as a film/stage actor and videographer for Letterpress Films. Ben is proudly represented by Radical Artists Agency.
On screen, Ben is known for his original sketch comedy, roles in the feature films "Army & Coop" and "Rook," and regional commercials. On stage, Ben is best known for his work in "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged," "The Big Bang," Mr. Wormwood in "Matilda," and the Cowardly Lion in "The Wizard of Oz" (the latter two roles earned him Colorado Theatre Guild Henry Award Nominations).
