Ben has lived in Columbus since he was born. He has been playing drums since middle school. He started interning at WCBE while going to Columbus Alternative High School. After that he was made a student employee, and now a substitute board operator. He is attending OSU, originally for jazz percussion, but since he prefers power-shredding free-jazz to the academic hogwash that is taught by the institution, he has changed his major to BA in Music, where he exercises his patience during his last few quarters of school.
