Born and raised in Austin, Texas. I say y’all. Moved to Brooklyn about 3 years ago.
I like it here, a lot. I also really like omelettes for dinner or any sort of breakfast food. Making things and stuff look really cool is what I love. Do you love really cool things and stuff? Okay, cool. Love it, me too. We should make things and stuff then. Cool.
Keep scrolling. I put together some of my flicks that’ll tell you more about me, Benny.
My legal name is actually Benjamin but don’t call me that.

Also my first time in South Africa. I came to Cape Town for a one-week shoot.
Everything was beautiful and delicious.
At 25 years of age, I saw snow for the first time ever in my life here in NYC. I cried (I know, I know). Wrote an obnoxious FB post about it. And then I went outside and took some pictures. I’m still not tired of it when it comes every year.
this has a story.
Alright, this may be quite literally a sh*tty story. Out of context, it’s probably also really disgusting. But I went to London a while back for a shoot. That red phone booth in the photo. Inside, was the most impressive human turd I had ever seen in my life. I’m not kidding. Unbroken, in one piece, from one corner to the other. In a long, perfect diagonal. So many questions. How? When? Who? (also WHY am I telling this story?)
I almost slipped on it as I stepped inside to take the most basic, tourist pic. I froze, foot in mid-air. I can’t emphasize it enough. It was so monumental, that any sentiment of repulsion or nausea became dull. My former copywriter/best friend and I, til this day, wonder if it’s still out there.
Ok ok, I’m done. No. I don’t have a photo, unfortunately (?)
I smiled for a photo. The cat’s joy was infectious.
Also, my co-workers (producer & copywriter) and I had an impromptu shoot on set, made a fake band cover, put it on IG and geo-tagged it. Some people thought we were legit. That’s all.
Not shown are my other 3 siblings,
which include one other brother and the 2 youngest sisters.
Raised by immigrant parents and damn proud of it.
I like skies.
Mostly these kind.
This is Benny meeting Benny.
My best friend found this gray feline on the internet and insisted I adopt him (I’m more of a dog person, I think).
Out of curiosity, we payed him a visit at a café. The story of having a cat with the same name immediately became convincing to me and my friends. Sadly, to adopt Benny, I had to take his brother Barney with me too. And he wasn’t that cute. So I left with zero cats.
