About the Founder


Connect with Ben on LinkedIn >


Ben uses his extensive network to facilitate meaningful connections between high-end creative talent and top brands, agencies and publishers. 

Always straddling the line between talent scouting and creative production, Ben was instrumental in growing The IdeaLists, an online marketplace that connected brands and agencies with accomplished talent; founded the digital-video division at HKM, a prominent bi-coastal commercial production company; and co-founded a theater company with the Oxford University Dramatic Society in the UK. He's produced digital, broadcast, and live content globally. His work has garnered millions of views as well as three Webby nods, and has been featured in international film and theater festival premieres, fashion-week presentations, and online launches for The New York Times, Vogue and Vanity Fair.

Originally from suburban Chicago, and after a long stint in the UK, Ben splits time between New York and Los Angeles. He considers himself an amateur connoisseur of pho and coffee, and avidly follows Chicago sports teams, the Tour De France and contemporary fiction.
