Ben Handelman

Portland, OR

Hello universe.

My name is Ben and I've been passionate about language and music since I was able to comprehend them. While I certainly have the capacity to learn musical instruments, my skills have always been with words. I've been writing about music on my website, Black Metal & Brews, since 2012 and have been an occasional contributor to Hammer Smashed Sound since 2013.

In November of 2013, my work as a serious blogger paid off and I found myself with my first paid gig as a writer, putting out SEO blog content and product descriptions for a marketing and web design company. In the months that followed, my duties at this company expanded. My work now includes blogging, creating site copy, and providing social media content for my employer's clients.

As I continue to grow as a writer, I hope to take on new projects, especially those that would help me cultivate journalistic skills. If you're looking for an eager, hard-working writer, I'm all yours.
