"Big Ben" has been a professional DJ/VJ since 2003, but he's been entertaining for far longer. Even from an early age, Ben always had a knack for entertaining the people around him. From chatting up a group of older relatives at 5 or taping his own version of Sports Center at 10, Ben has always enjoyed putting on a show.
During his school years, his interests spanned from basketball and golf to music and drama. During his senior year, besides taking home the high honor of "class clown," he was approached by his principle after reading the afternoon announcements. Instead of scolding him for putting his own twist on the same old script, she encouraged him to talk to her friend Bill Freeman, who headed up the state of the art Broadcasting program at Central Carolina Community College. After graduation, he enrolled there and began his degree.
During his time at CCCC, Ben's career as a DJ/VJ took off. He began playing for schools, birthday parties and on the air at the college's radio station; WDDC 90.5 THE BEAT, hosting his own morning show. From there he worked on air in Greensboro and Raleigh
for stations like 100.3 The Buzz and G105.
Ben has done everything from weddings and birthdays to schools and fraternities for PC Productions. His high energy persona and interactive approach has made him a big hit at school dances and his timing and experience help make wedding days smooth yet unforgettable.
Currently, Ben resides in Liberty, NC with his wife and two daughters. In addition to DJing, he works with youth of all ages as the Family Minister at Freedom Family Church.
