About Ben

Ben was born in London, England, and has spent the better part of his life exploring the city's strange and curious quarters. He has always had an affinity for stories, and as a child, he was a voracious reader and artist.

Ben's passion for stories led him to study film, theater, and literature at Queen Mary University of London and the University of Amsterdam. He earned a BA in Drama and an MA in Comparative Cultural Analysis, with a focus on narratology and the structures of character existence through Possible World Theory.

After graduating, Ben began to make a name for himself in the arts. He has shown his work in London and Edinburgh, and has produced works for major organizations, such as the Foreign Office, Ministry of Justice, and British Heart Foundation. His short stories have been shortlisted and longlisted for international competitions, and several have been published in anthologies. His short films have been shown at UK festivals.

Ben is a strong advocate for the power of storytelling. He believes that stories can help us to understand ourselves and the world around us, and he is committed to using his work to make a positive impact on the world.
