Described by Boards Magazine as the “Soulful Surrealist”, Ben portrays experience through unexpected images that are both touching and unsettling. This balance between charm and discomfort, humanity and visual-wonder is the heart of his work.

Ben’s work has been featured in Boards Magazine, Shots Magazine, Stash Magazine, Creativity Magazine, Motionographer, and on countless blogs and festivals around the world. Ben was featured as a Best New Director at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival as part of the Saatchi and Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase and named a Young Gun by the ADC. His promo for the band Beast was nominated for Best Music Video at the Grammys. His holiday Campaign for Samsung garnered a Cannes Lion and he recently directed a VR experience through Wieden and Kennedy for Samsung. He has worked for clients such as Coca-Cola, Sprite, Google, Kellogg’s, Samsung, Unilever and Nintendo to name a few.

Ben’s favorite films contain images and ideas that come from a personal place which have been transposed to unexpected visual worlds populated by charming, unforgettable characters. He wishes to transport audiences to places that are both familiar but imagined. Ben is currently developing his first feature film, Foxblood, a dark thriller, and in production on the VR experience Marco Polo Go Round, a surreal, romantic comedy.
