Hi. I'm Ben.
I'm a fiction writer interested in the American west and Japan across literary and dystopian narratives. My work has most recently been featured in Switchback, Lime Hawk, and Cirque: A Literary Journal for the North Pacific Rim.
Previously, I was a strategist and copy writer for members of Congress, local mayors and officials, nonprofits, and candidates for public office across America. My political writing can be found at BlueOregon.
I live in Portland, Oregon (by way of Los Angeles) with my wife and daughter. I like bicycles, sumo wrestling, tiki bars, coffee shops, whiskey, nature, cats, tabletop games, video games with good stories, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
