Hi, it's Ben.


I'm a technology and advocacy consultant in New York, partnering with companies, causes, and campaigns to inspire people to take action in the moments that matter. I’m currently working independently on projects building digital teams and programs for cause-based startups.


I previously served as Senior Vice President at Blue State (WPP Group), an agency and technology company that works with non-profits, advocacy organizations, and brands to build campaigns for social good. I led major partnerships in New York, San Francisco, and London with Google, the Obama Foundation, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the NAACP, among others. After several years in Washington, I co-founded the agency’s San Francisco office before moving to New York.

Prior to joining Blue State, I led digital advocacy at a prominent lobbying and public affairs firm in Washington. I worked with large corporations, universities, and trade associations to mobilize supporters on behalf of important legislation and policies. I’ve also spent time in the U.S. Senate, the U.S. Department of Justice, Xerox Corporation, and several political campaigns.

I live in Brooklyn, occasionally compete in triathlons, and take a lot of photos. I’m a graduate of the London School of Economics and American University.
