Ben is very excited to be a part of Made Up Theatre and their quest to explore the endless possibilities of improvisation. After inspiration and training from The Second City, Annoyance Theatre, ComedySportz, and Upright Citizens Brigade, Ben co-founded the Made Up Theatre to share his love for comedy and improvisation with the Bay Area. He holds an MFA degree from Academy of Art University and received his BA degree from San Jose State University.
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.
By day, Ben works at an event ticketing software company (the one that Made Up Theatre uses).
