On top of his commercial production career, Ben dedicated time to creating a short film about minimalism, theory and time-travel called, The Constant. The Constant, was a Film Shortage Daily Short Pick in 2017 and received press from popular media outlets, such as Gizmodo and Film School Rejects.

His breadth of knowledge, experience and driven spirit has led him to create compelling films since the age of 18. Directing has taken him throughout the world to places such as Prague, New York and Hawaii. While Ben loves traveling, he currently resides in Santa Monica, California and can often be found enjoying live jazz, reading comics, scuba diving, or in the kitchen acting out his fantasy of becoming the next Iron Chef.
