Ben is very excited to be a part of Made Up Theatre and their quest to explore the endless possibilities of improvisation and sketch comedy. He holds an MFA degree from Academy of Art University and received his BA degree from San Jose State University.
After inspiration and training from The Second City, Annoyance Theatre, ComedySportz, and Upright Citizens Brigade, Ben co-founded the Made Up Theatre in Fremont to share his love for comedy and improvisation with the Bay Area. As an improvisational acting coach and teacher, he has led improv classes for teens and adults, as well as been contracted to perform improv comedy shows and facilitate team building workshops for many organizations throughout the Bay Area.
Recently, he co-founded Made Up Productions, a video production company, and is currently working with them on a video sketch series. Ben also works at a small start up ticketing company (the one that Made Up Theatre uses) and one day hopes to meet his celebrity crush Anna Kendrick.
