Greetings True Believers. My name is Benjamin Plattner, born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I live in the Columbia-Tusculum neighborhood of Cincinnati with my lovely wife Ieva and our canine cohorts Violet and Clover. I have an unquenchable appetite for coffee, food, drink, music, travel and Cincinnati’s newfound momentum (feel free to contact me to discuss any of these things).
As a individual possessed by rabid curiosity as well as an insatiable need to experience new things I find myself seeking an opportunity to join a creative team looking to make a mark on the world. I am a hardworking, driven individual with a lifelong yearning to learn, write and tell stories. Human interaction energizes me like the sunshine does Superman; be it a great conversation, concert, speech or most anything else. As a 2010 graduate from University of Cincinnati (BA - Political Science) I have developed excellent research skills, the ability to craft a message and a knack for understanding an audience.
SCIENTIST; sahy-uhn-tist \sci·en·tist\:an expert in science, especially one of the physical or natural sciences. one engaging in a systemic activity to acquire knowledge,
DETECTIVE; de·tec·tive \di-ˈtek-tiv\: a person whose job is to find information about something or someone one who is skeptical and is seeking answers,
FIGHTER; fight·er noun \ˈfī-tər\: a warrior or soldier, someone who does not give up; someone who continues fighting or trying.
Beyond anything else this is what I can provide to your team; a scientist's desire to continuously acquire knowledge; a detective's skepticism, need for answers and questioning of the status quo; and a fighter's roll-with-the-punches pugnacity and indomitable personality that thrives when the going gets tough.
Fully realizing these kinds of 'Hey, look at me!!!' summaries are an impossible way to gauge whether someone is a good fit, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, would like to see some samples of the work I've done or would just like to grab a cup of coffee!
I’d like to wrap things up with a quote from Albert Einstein that speaks volumes to how I try to approach the each and every day.
'The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious, it is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder is good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed
