about

AHOY!

I'm Ben.  I'm a story-scribbler, picture-squiggler, book aficionado, child advocate, dragon tamer (someday), and avid sock wearer (especially of the striped variety).  I have spent most of my time on this planet reading, drawing, sleeping, gardening and eating chocolate.  I live next to a pond in an old brick mill with my wife, Kelsey (a photographer and designer!), and a wild goldendoodle named Gigi.
