Hi there, my name is Ben. I’m six foot five, damn near 350 pounds. I’m always the hungriest guy in the room.
Currently, I’m a creative director with DDB Worldwide in Chicago helping define a new brand for the United States Army as well as a new working group, Team DDB, to service it.
Priorly, I spent time with Goodby Silverstein and Partners in San Francisco helping win pitches and produce creative for Pepsi, the National Football League, and Liberty Mutual.
While in San Francisco I also worked at Heat and DigitasLBi, winning nearly every major international award for clients like Taco Bell and EA Sports.
Nearly a decade ago I began my writing career naming medical devices. I was especially proud of a catheter titled “Off-Road.” My employer, less so. They fired me.
