Yes, Benny is my real name. My first employer in West Virginia once told me that my name sounded like I would become a professional golfer. Sorry to say, I have yet to play a round of golf. 

In the past seven years, I have specialized in art direction, design, interactive experiences and integrated campaigns. I have driven and done hands-on work for amazing clients like Philips Respironics, Rite Aid, Hyde Marine, Calgon Carbon, and Matthews International, among others.

I've assisted in managing creative teams and overseeing the execution of a wide variety of creative deliverables. I love to be involved in the entire process, from research to concepting through full execution. I enjoy sweating the details and being put in situations where I can learn something new.

When not pushing a pencil or manipulating pixels, I usually have a bicycle under me, a guitar in front of me, or a camera in my hands.
