I'm Ben and I recently graduated from Bentley University with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and a minor degree in Sports Management. I now sell group and individual health and life insurance for a small brokerage in Connecticut.
Here at Bleacher Report, I was a Featured Columnist for Major League Baseball and the Boston Red Sox and also a member of B/R's Breaking News Team. I also completed the sportswriting internship in 2012 and worked on the Winter Gap Group team.
I'm a former sports and copy editor for Bentley's official student newspaper, The Vanguard. I've written for NESN, The Waltham News Tribune, The Somerville News and The Wellesley Townsman. My Bleacher Report work has been featured on the websites of The Boston Globe, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Los Angeles Times.

Just signed up to tell you that you must have been absent when brains were handed out. I don't see how you got or keep a job by publishing such crap. I guess your a Bama fan..Huh
I don't think I said You hate the Yankees. All I said is give credit where deserved. Haven't seen one good sentence written about Mariano Rivera. Fenway DID show some respect and love Saturday. Class act. Last night there was a bad call at 2nd...(Nunez was safe) but that's another post. 6 games out isn't slot. Especially with the guys NY has been running out there every night. The dig days of summer are here and the pennant race doesn't start until
Sept. 1st. Just give credit where due dude...I'll keep reading.
If you wanna be a legit "Sports Reporter" you gotta show respect for ALL TEAMS IN ALL SPORTS...Even the great Bob Ryan (who admittedly is a Sox fan) shows love for the Yankees when deserved. Be fair dude
@ Benjamin, it`s a beanie ball, I know what it feels like, but RAPTORS. is cool so show him RESPECT! Lol
dude ur articles are biased show some raptors loveee
Please stop writing biased MLB pieces that clearly favor the Red Sox. It clouds pieces that have the potential to be good.
Ben, interested to see your reaction to the Demarcus Cousins column. Also I cannot believe that you call UCLA the Bears. Cal isn't USC on the hate meeter for us Bruins but it is somewhat akin to calling Texas A and M the Longhorns. See what I mean.
Stick to writing about NE sports teams and don't even think about ever writing an article on any type of soccer ever again. Your piece entitled "Spain Will Cruise vs. Italy with Balotelli Out" was quite possibly the worst article I've read on b/r due to its many factual and grammatical mistakes. Just to point out a few: Javier Hernandez is not on the Italian national team, you can't "stand in your head" like Buffon is supposed to do to stop Spain, and you clearly didn't watch any of the Euros last year, considering it was only 2-0 Spain till the 85th minute. All in all, you would think that with all these article hits and features on different websites and in newspapers, you would at least learn how to properly write in English, especially if you are trying to pursue a career revolving around the mastery of the English language.
Please tell me why you referred to UCLA as the Bears, I am relatively sure they are the Bruins.
Random question, is this your full-time job?
