Ben is a native Nashvillian and a graduate of the University of Tennessee with honors. He was fortunate to study abroad in Poland with travel opportunities to Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Ukraine, Czech Republic and the Netherlands. He managed to work in a little side trip, for his honeymoon (!), across Spain visiting Madrid, Sevilla, Rhonda, Malaga and Barcelona. Ben worked in San Francisco before returning to Nashville where he has been predominantly involved with the creation of notable arts, education and civic structures gracing the Nashville landscape. Ben hails from an artistic family: his mother is an interior designer, father is a journalist and brother is a high-end home builder. He credits his upbringing with his insatiable appetite for learning, reading, picking up new hobbies, taking art classes, and his enthusiasm for keeping up his sketch books. Ben is married to Allyson, his high school sweetheart. They make their home in East Nashville with their boys Liam and Henry, and are anticipating with great joy the arrival of their baby girl in December. Ben can be reached at our Nashville office.
