about


AHOY!

I'm Ben!  I'm a story-scribbler, picture-squiggler, book aficionado, child advocate, dragon tamer (someday), and avid sock wearer.  I have spent most of my time on this planet reading, drawing, playing basketball, gardening and eating chocolate.  I live in Tacoma, WA with my wife, Kelsey (a photographer and designer!), my son, and a wild goldendoodle named gigi.
