Ben is a resident of our Nation's capitol and consistently fails to find anything interesting there to do. He is an avid music lover, recalling both his first cassette tape (Mariah Carey's eponymous debut) and his first CD (Ace of Base's The Sign). He has since amassed such a collection that his apartment is built out of old CD jewel cases.
His favorite music tends to come from other countries, as they do it "right." From the very first song, he has loved artists like Our Lady Peace, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, No Doubt, Ben Folds Five, Alanis Morissette, Robyn, Garbage and many others. Some of his favorite remixers include Bimbo Jones, Fonzerelli, Offer Nissim, Jody Den Broeder, and the Young Punx. He is also single and willing to go on dates, as long as you pay.
