Ben is an Australian-based Director and Producer with over 15 years of experience in the Advertising Industry.
After finishing his tertiary education in Film, Ben moved into the advertising industry, initially as Production Manager and then transitioning to Producer. During his time at a Tabletop production company, Ben learnt about the dark arts that is food shooting and ultimately started directing. Whilst initially watching a hot Milo being stirred with a toothpick for 10 minutes without noticing any discernible difference, today he could probably espouse every reason why you need to stir it until friction sparks fly!
