Face-to-face, I’m just Ben. But in the digital space, I’ve stuck to NashvilleBen.
I was born, raised, and am currently living in the Music City. Nashville is a wonderful place to be, and it's obvious that I'm crazy about the people and vibrancy here. But it’s not the only good place. There are many, and I am excited to fall in love with that next city just as much. But no matter where I go or who I meet, or even if they hate country music, I'll still be the same ole NashvilleBen at heart.
Still reading? Well, I guess you are on my about.me page so here's my chance to do my spiel...
I'm the Media Director for a kick-ass advertising agency on West End in Nashville. Media strategy, planning and buying are my trades, and I wouldn't trade them for hardly anything. Perhaps the only thing I would is: social media. Social media lives at the intersection of paid media (my trade) and earned media (my play) so it's only natural that I spend entirely too much time absorbing online consumer behavior, especially as it relates to social media.
Outside of "work", you'll most likely find me serving with some very inspiring and courageous people at Open Table Nashville, Streetworks and the Oasis Center. I believe in giving other people the fair shot at life I've had. God knows I wouldn't be here if I hadn't had plenty of help along my way.
Above all else, I believe that we're in this thing called life together. We can either choose to help each other out along the way or we can duke it out. I'll let you figure out which route I'm choosing.
Enough about me. Let's talk about you + me, and how we can work together. Whether it's work or personal, email me so we can chat about making the changes we wish to see in this world.
