My self-summary
I'm Ben! I'm a freelance audio engineer with a degree from American University in Audio Production and a minor in Computer Science. I'm an avid gamer, mostly FPS and MMOs with the occasional RPG thrown in for good measure. I also sometimes play tabletop RPGs (mostly Dungeons & Dragons but I'm always willing to try new systems).

Every year I volunteer at MAGFest (as well as some of their other events such as MAGStock and MAGClassic) as one of their audio engineers. I used to only work in JamSpace but I recently joined the Music Dept. and am running the sound at Main Stage.

By the way, I'll be completely honest here and let you know that I am on the autism spectrum (very low end though) and have ADHD (not quite so moderate though). But these are just things that make me who I am :)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an audio engineer, I take work whenever and wherever I can get it (within reason of course, I'm not going to up and go to Alaska for a single job. Unless it was something like running sound for a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert or something). I'm also trying to break into the recording business end of audio.
I’m really good at
Mixing live music, as well as drinks. Being passionate about the things I really love.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, anything by Michael Chrichton, Brent Weeks, Brandon Sanderson, and Drew Karpyshyn.

Movies: Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Sweeny Todd, Scarface (1932), Citizen Kane (1941), all the Marvel movies.

Shows: Doctor Who (post 2005), Torchwood, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, iZombie, Scorpion, Gotham.

Music: Metallica, Breaking Benjamin, Nightwish, ACDC, Iron Maiden, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Avenged Sevenfold, Triforce Quartet, Brentalfloss, Dimmu Borgir.

Food: Everything, just everything.
The six things I could never do without
1) Kindle, loaded with gigabytes of epic tales
2) iPod loaded with tunes. Music is one of the most important things in my life.
3) Netflix. I really love binge-watching.
4) Laptop. For playing my favorite old-school computer games.
5 & 6 have yet to be determined.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my career is headed, how I can make the most of it, and puppies. What more does one need?
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my friends playing video games or seeing a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
my dice have more than six sides.
You should message me if
If you love music as much as I do (frankly, I'm making a career out of it) or are a musician, or if you enjoy tabletop RPGs or video games.
