Hi, I'm Ben. In elementary school I was that kid that doodled goofy characters on his homework. I was also that kid in middle school... and high school... so I guess I've always loved drawing and creating, and now I'm hoping I can turn that passion into a full-time career.

I grew up with four younger siblings, and my mom has run a daycare in our house since I was 10. I also taught Sunday School for two years, and I coached my little brothers little league baseball team and flag football team. That said, I've got a lot of experience with kids; children's Illustration is right up my alley. At the same time, I'm a sucker for some more serious concepts too, like the Spiderwick Chronicles, Narnia, and The Hunger Games. Regardless of the concept, I ultimately want to use my skills to inspire, entertain, teach, and bring stories to life.
