Ben is a junior pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies. At the age of 18, he left his native Oklahoma and embarked westward. In SoCal, he stumbled through many a major and existential crisis until Peaks helped him realize that studying, like, rocks and trees and water or whatever would be pretty cool. Ben enjoys endurance sports, country music, writing about himself in the third person, and trying to appear more enigmatic and fascinating than he actually is through the use of black & white photos. Ask him about his infatuation with Sam Darnold or the three times he’s broken his leg!
