“It is rare to find artistic sensitivity, clear thinking, fun-loving attitude, and sincere responsibility all in one person. With these qualities it is no surprise that Ben has achieved so much success so quickly; and the good news is he is still evolving so keep an eye on this guy as I am sure there is much more to come!”
