Ben is an American-born financial journalist interested in covering capital markets and financial services.

Through the stories he tells, Ben hopes to illuminate previously hidden issues and to help readers gain a clearer understanding of the world around them.

Ben’s work has appeared in the Washington Post, the Times of London, the Real Deal, as well as student and local publications. Ben received his bachelor’s degree from Fordham University in 2017, graduating Phi Beta Kappa and majoring in sociology and American studies. After finishing the master’s course at City, he hopes to begin a career in financial journalism in London. In his spare time, Ben enjoys traveling and exploring his new home in London, and although he’s gained an appreciation for what most of the world calls football, he still enjoys watching American football and baseball.
