What People Are Saying

  • “I feel honored to have had an opportunity to work with Benjamin and strongly recommend him. His passion for his work was visible to everyone with which he collaborated. For example, he was regularly the last one to leave each day, reading everything he could get his hands on. Benjamin has embraced every learning opportunity with enthusiasm, and is not afraid to ask questions, digging deep into problems when needed, and creatively exploring potential resolutions. Benjamin has a strong sense of personal ownership towards every task he takes on, which is an essential quality for any team player. I look forward to following Benjamin’s many successes in the future, and will look forward to working alongside him again in the future!”

    – Matt Howell,
    Senior Product Manager, Warner Bros. Games

  • “There is a lot that can be said about Benjamin. He is a hard working, self starter, who puts a lot of heart into what he is focused on. He is always willing and excited to learn new things, especially within the video game industry. His drive and passion, for this industry, is contagious which is a nice breath of fresh air in what is quickly becoming a stale and lifeless corporate machine. His friendliness, humor, and sociability makes him a perfect candidate for any relationship style position. Benjamin is a pleasure to work with and hope that I can continue to work with him in the future.”

    – David Sinur,
    Associate Producer, Turbine

  • Univ. relations is an important job and Benjamin does it well. Understanding the talent pipeline is critical and taking the time to listen to so many students, faculty and administrators requires someone of Benjamin’s background and temperament.
