Ben is the kind of guy you want to bring to every party. He is vibrant, fun to be around, and most of all curious and refreshingly interested in getting to know you. He's the guy that when you tell him in passing about your dog when you were 10 years old, he'll remember the pooch's name 2 weeks later when you bump into him downtown.
Ben makes his living as a journalist, asking questions, telling stories, and trying to give a voice to those who get often passed over. His enthusiasm for this is weirdly contagious.
But enough of this seriousness, because he's a pretty lighthearted dude. Good jokes, particularly of the old Jewish sort, are definitely in the repertoire. And few can cut a rug with Ben's prowess--you can learn a lot about somebody based on how they handle themselves when the swing music comes on.
