hi there

I’m Ben, Full Stack Creative in Dallas

About me

I lead creative initiatives with business strategy, design thinking and a hands-on approach.

Currently, I'm a Lead Designer at NRG Energy, focused on brand, marketing and product design.

By night, I run Pixeldrop, a digital creative agency focused on branding and web design on the Webflow platform.

I'm constantly learning and proficient in almost all marketing and creative disciplines. My top skills include branding, ui/ux design, product design, business strategy, digital marketing, SEO, art direction, icon design, motion graphics, photography, content and influencer marketing, SMM and consulting.

I've held titles of Lead Designer, Marketing/Creative Director, Art Director, Sr. Designer and Photographer for the last 10 years.

Known for my entrepreneurial spirit, I'm a self-starter with vision for big picture strategies and pixel-level details. I'm a natural leader and enjoy working with creative, passionate people. In everything, I'm driven to simplify complex ideas into usable, human-friendly experiences.

I live in Illustrator, Sketch, Abstract, Webflow, Photoshop, most of Adobe Creative Suite, Office 365, Wrike, Slack and of course Spotify.

My education includes a Bachelor's in Marketing, a Master's in Theology (I enjoy teaching the Bible) and about half of Google's repository. I'm also certified in Google Display Ads.

I'm husband to Sydnee. Dad to Diesel, Maverick and Hollyn. In my down time, I'm running with the fam, playing Call of Duty, building LEGO or having lightsabers duels with my kids.

Some of my favorites

I've got more portfolio work than I know what to do with, and it's tough to keep it updated, so I've put a few of my faves here and the rest is continually updated over on my Dribbble. Check it out!
