Ben began as a camera assistant to legendary documentary cinematographer Mark Benjamin when he worked on documentaries for HBO and The American Ruling Class. He then went on to assist Doug Liman on the commercial hit, Mr. & Mrs. Smith. In 2006, he premiered his first feature documentary, A STADIUM STORY, at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival. In TV, he has produced two documentaries for MTV’s award winning series, TRUE LIFE, and shot and produced 6 episodes for THE FIRST 48 A&E’s highly acclaimed documentary series on homicide investigations. In typical Brooklyn 2010s fashion, Ben enjoys: composting, surfing, rock-climbing, biking, ping-pong, and the occasional mushroom forage. He is a former chess champion, and Shakespearean Monologist. He’s also good at drinking and impersonating you.
