Meet the Author

Hi, I’m Ben!

I write books and tell stories.

Me in Mongolia, with a golden eagle and a giant statue of Genghis Khan!

I’ve produced documentaries, founded and managed a neuroscience news agency called “The Connectome,” and launched and run a neo-Victorian art and fiction magazine called “The Willows.”

These days, I travel the world as a freelance writer. I’ve lived in Mongolia, Kenya, Morocco, Turkey, and more than 40 other countries. My Twitter is @writingben, and here’s my Instagram.

I’ve written for Aeon, Scientific American, The Huffington Post, Discover Magazine, and many other outlets, on topics ranging from cutting-edge brain interfaces to stone-age languages.

I love to tell stories from the frontiers of science, history, culture and geography — and the ways in which all these things come together.

Want to work with me?

You’ve come to the right place. I’m open to collab ideas.
