Ben started out in advertising aged 8 when he created some branded coasters (made from cardboard) to celebrate his love of Walkers crisps. Since those heady days, he's led a number of brilliant accounts, creating effective and award-winning work for Tourism Ireland, Google and Warburtons as well as HBO and BT. Ben's whole thing is about building proper, empathic relationships... and snacks.
