Ben was born and raised in Austin Texas. Starting with Shakespearean theatre at the age of thirteen, Ben began to hone his sense of language and a deep understanding of human expression. Quickly finding a home in Improv as well, Ben was able to train his timing and explore and improve his comedic perspective.


While getting his BA in Theatre from the University of Texas, Ben's award winning performances led him to create his own company, Wormwood Productions; which allowed him to produce an increasing number of better and more challenging shows. During this time, Ben continued to train as an improviser and sketch writer and performer with groundbreaking companies like the Well Hung Jury.


After Three years, it was time to find a bigger challenge and Ben moved to New York to push his limits further than ever before. After three wonderful seasons performing with Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey in both their touring troupe and Main Stage, as well as joining Actor's Equity Association, Ben is seeking to continue to expand his skills, his range, and make outstanding theatre.
