Hey there! I’m Ben Berman, a visual storyteller from San Francisco, CA. I am a December 2022 graduate of the University of Colorado Boulder, with a major in journalism and a minor in media production.
When I do journalism, I love to translate my passion for storytelling and curiosity into articles focused on the arts, science, politics and the state of Colorado. For my college newspaper and publications with regional circulation, I have written over three dozen stories about art, culture and music and have a keen eye for editing. You can find that work here. I have also worked as a freelance journalist for Crave The Sound, the Left Hand Valley Courier, Longmont Leader and more.
Alongside writing, I am passionate about opportunities that allows me to flex my creative muscles and demonstrate my love for visual design and storytelling. I have a passion for education in the fields of science, art, culture or anthropology. I hope to illustrate these topics with clarity, empathy and sufficient analysis in my communication so that we can make better policy decisions on how to engage with our communities and the environment. I am skilled in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and Audition, alongside Blender. I have pursued all these mediums in various digital storytelling projects, such as a web-based, early-education timeline or short-form documentaries about my community or my passions.
Oh, and in my free time, I like to write novels! I’ve written and published one so far, and it’s about pirates! It can be found digitally and in print on Amazon Prime, and more information can be found here.
Consider this website a portfolio, with links to my various creative works, both written and visual. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any inquiries.
Thanks for stopping by!
