Ben got his first exposure to improv at workshops put on by Irony City. He began taking classes at SCIT in May 2011 and hasn’t looked back since.
He was a founding member of the now-defunct but wildly influential group AKA, with whom he performed at the Del Close Marathon in NYC. Ben was a member of The Up & Up; he currently performs as part of the house team Field Trip, as a crime solver/perpetrator in CSI: Crime Scene Improvisation, and as approximately one half of the duo Ben & Jerome.
Ben is a native of St. Louis, and is happy to be in Pittsburgh. He is an engineer, and doesn’t get your theater references
