I’m Ben.

I hail from South Dakota but I’ve been enjoying life in the Windy City since 2014. In my free time, I like to run, try new restaurants, listen to music and podcasts and cheer on the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Digital marketing is my specialty. I currently work at SoMe Connect in West Loop. I have helped clients across various industries build brand awareness, get leads and increase sales.
