Hi my name is Ben, i’m a creative that not only comes up with ideas but brings them to life.
I’ve been in advertising nearly 13 years and have moved between post production and the creative world allowing me to take a really hands on approach with my projects.
I like to mix my production skills with my creative work to ensure the end product is true to the original idea.
