Until 1972 he was a successful actor and singer in theatre, film and TV. In '70 he joined the award winning Group One Productions of Hollywood where he quickly developed production skills on a multitude of projects ranging from two-man second-unit shoots to Carole King's 1974 Central Park concert (12 cameras and a union crew of over 100.) Until the early ‘90s, based in New York, he worked in film and TV as a producer and first Assistant Director – in more than half the fifty states – on over 1,000 commercials and dozens of corporate films for clients including ABC-TV, AT&T, Exxon, Ford, GM, IBM, MacDonald’s, Miller Beer, Porsche-Audi, Proctor & Gamble, and Volkswagen. Ben also worked as production manager or first AD on five theatrical and TV movies. In '89, he began producing and directing a TV show, Love is the Power. Since then he has produced and directed approximately 70 multi-camera TV shows and over 50 live concerts and documentaries. Ben takes many projects from concept through completion; often writing, producing, directing, shooting and editing.
