Benjamin has always had a love for the arts. Starting from a young age when his playwright mother introduced him to the stage, his interests and passions have only grown with time.
Through his early years he was involved as a key player in school plays like Nicholas Nickleby and Scrooge. His head filled with creative exploits with the wild imaginations of some of his favorite authors like Tolkien, Wouk, Rauls and Hawthorne. Later in college and beyond, the likes of Puig, Ruiz and Coehlo took hold.
While in college, he became a stagehand for a play and was immersed in the school’s creative arts programs, where he met gifted artists that prompted him to switch from an Engineering major to Film & TV Production one. His intense pursuit for producing quality content has not stopped since.
Now he is inspired by scribes like Chapelle, Sorkin, Lorre, del Toro, Leoni and budding writers like Figueroa, Ordonez and Baez.
Benjamin has never considered himself a writer or an author, but he loves the craft and works closely with many screenwriters. His passion for the arts and his community led him to launch TIGHT5, a not for profit organization, to help those who are starting their journey to be empowered and inspired to find their voice.
