My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there, I'm Ben. I'm an up and coming screenwriter, poet, and children's book author with a love of film and literature, philosophy, nature (and animals), mysticism, and history. Culture fascinates me. I've interned and/or worked on a farm, in a biophysics lab, in a senator's office, at a treatment center for people with cognitive disabilities, at a yoga center, at the museum of natural history, and at the Esalen Institute.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spent the last year studying in Jerusalem, and am now back in New Jersey to work on several writing projects and begin pre-production on a sci-fi/fantasy short film that I wrote and will soon be assistant-directing (once we get the rest of our funding!). Before Pardes I was working and living at a number of spiritual retreat centers across America, doing everything from office work to grounds keeping. I'm very interested in Big Questions.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder Crohn's disease when I was 9 years old. Consequently, I was sick - and in and out of hospitals - a lot during my adolescence. After a major surgery at 18* (where they removed a foot of my small intestine), and learning that I was/am allergic/sensitive to gluten (sigh...), I have been symptom free for 11 years and counting!

*yep, I've got a cool scar.
