Ben's affinity for music began with sounding out familiar songs on the piano, leading him to start lessons at the age of five. Several years later, his musical interests reached new levels when he was introduced to the soundtracks of playstation games.

Ben quickly developed a fascination with video games and the way that their soundtracks affected his gaming experience. He subsequently began ordering soundtracks written by his favorite composers. These composers inspired him to create his own music, and led him to recieve a Bachelor of Music in Composition from Willamette University in 2009.

With a drive for creativity and a passion for music, he seeks to create evocative music for games that emanate from the core of the project.
