First off...hey! My name is Ben and I am a college graduate who is
working as much as I can so I can move out of Rochester when I can.
I have my degree in Musical Theater and it has become one of the
few things that keeps my going. I never thought it would be my
passion when I was growing up, but once I started in college (kind
of on accident), now I can't imagine myself doing anything else.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I am working as a server at Applebee's and making late
night Denny's trips with my best friend. If I'm lucky enough, I'm
rehearsing a show with one of the community theater groups around
I’m really good at
I guess making people laugh? I guess I am just good at making
people feel better about being in a bad situation. Anyone can come
to me and I tend to play devils advocate and help them see both
sides of whatever situation they are in.
Oh and people are usually pretty surprised at how well I can riff
for some reason.
And capturing pictures from Snapchat.
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh. It is pretty distinctive.
My sense of humor. I'm pretty funny if I do say so myself.
My singing. I tend to sing more than I speak.
The fact I actually took the time to put my contacts in that day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
~Lord of the Rings
~Boy Meets Boy
Mostly everything except foreign and horror films.
~Sister Act 2
~Singin' In The Rain
~The Guilt Trip
...just to name a few
I'm studying musical theater so I have a very wide range in music.
As far as genres goes, country is my absolute favorite. I find a
lot of it so much more passionate than, say pop music, and I love
how it really paints a picture of what they are singing about. But
for favorite bands/artists...
~Panic! At The Disco
~All Time Low
...but there is sooooo much more
~Parks and Rec
~American Horror Story
~Brothers & Sisters
~Will and Grace
~Orange Is The New Black
I eat a lot, but I love Italian, Chinese, and cheap little hometown
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Do I work today? What auditions are coming up? How long til I can
move to Cali or NY?
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually at work since everyone goes out to eat on Friday nights but
I'm usually done early enough to go out after and grab a drink or
You should message me if
you want to talk or if anything I said striked your fancy.
