About Ben

I'm a storyteller with over 15 years' experience at the forefront of the media industry. From branded to editorial, for both the BBC and CNN, my career has been driven by creating engaging stories across all formats. From radio documentaries to long-read articles, television documentaries to premium digital video series, I've produced content consumed by global audiences of millions. A veteran of World Cups, Olympic Games and traveling the globe in the name of story-telling; I'm also a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a Royal Television Society Award winner, a student of The New School's MFA Creative Writing program in fiction, an Everton fan, a Beatles obsessive and a rather average guitar player.
