hi there

I’m Ben, Full Stack Creative from Dallas

About me

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

Currently, I'm 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 a constant learner and am proficient in most anything marketing and creative, including branding, ui/ux design, product design, business strategy, digital marketing, SEO, art direction, icon design, motion graphics, photography, content and influencer marketing, team leadership, and teaching.

I have expert knowledge of Illustrator, Sketch, Webflow, Photoshop and most of the Adobe Creative Suite.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Marketing and a Master's in Theology (because I also enjoy teaching the Bible).

I've held titles of Lead Designer, Marketing Director, Art Director, Creative Director, Graphic Designer, and Photographer over the last 15 years. I naturally lean toward roles where I can provide strategic leadership to creative, product, and marketing verticals. I believe design is wholistic and the brands that will survive in the future are design-first.

I'm husband to Sydnee. Dad to Diesel and Maverick. Future owner of a Cybertruck, current player of the latest Call of Duty, and I love building Legos and having lightsaber battles with my sons. I'm into fashion, firearms, interior design, EDC gear, Apple products, and the latest Marvel movies.

I'm a kid at heart and I believe play is key to learning.

Some of my favorite work

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 fav's here and the rest is continually updated over on my Dribbble. Check it out!
