Ben started his career in the post-room of UK creative powerhouse BBH. Here he climbed the ranks before transitioning to their in-house production company Black Sheep Studios, working on campaigns for the likes of Audi and KFC. In 2016, after meeting Callum on a branded content shoot, Ben co-founded After Party Studios. Their mission was simple. Increase production values on YouTube. With experience in both long and short-form content, Ben is in charge of all things creative here at the studio.

He has invested in multiple businesses, is a non-exec board director, and as co-founder of APS, recently stepped into a COO role to aid with the growth and stability of the company, which has doubled in size across 2020.
