I'm Ben. I'm a researcher, photographer, videographer, writer and traveler currently based in Atlanta, GA. 

I've got a diverse set of interests: in addition to a love of travel, I spend a lot of time thinking about, writing about, and photographing food.

I'm also interested in the relationships people have with technologies. My recent research centers around mobile dating apps and the role of these apps in users' everyday lives, including when and where users get online and what users do after they log on.

I hold a MA in Visual Anthropology from The University of Manchester's Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology. I also hold a MS in Sociology from Illinois State University and a BA in Sociology/Anthropology and Latin American Studies from Millsaps College.
