I first met Ben when I was the subject of an interview he was conducting for VICE. We chatted for hours and, by the end of the interview, I offered him a job writing for CBSNewYork.com. He was that impressive!
Ben is an excellent writer and idea generator. He collaborated with our editors but self-assigned his topics. He always delivered smart, engaging, timely articles and never missed a deadline.
He's a problem-solver who takes initiative and understands industry trends and social media.
Ben is also very personable and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him.

Producing strategic and targeted content that is engaging, actionable and SEO-friendly, is a full-time job.
I believe that by putting your content needs and objectives in my capable hands, you will maximize your results, which can lead to increased revenue.
The best products, brands and services in the world don't become great without the right framework bringing them to life.
I've produced and distributed copy under strict deadlines and in a variety of forms, including long-form features, blogging, newsletters, corporate profiles and marketing/PR.
If my six years as a writer (Bylines include CBSNewYork, VICE, Bleacher Report, Bloomberg Sports, SportsBlog and iSportsTimes) has taught me anything, it's that telling a story is important, but it's the where, when and to whom aspects that translate into revenue.
