Ben Lorenz

Brooklyn, New York, United States

Ben is an Oregon-grown writer, actor, and director now living in New York City. He studied comparative literature and environmental science at Harvard and then wrote his first feature—an eco-rom-com set in Central Park—while sequestered backstage as an understudy on Broadway. His writing digs into our assumptions about the natural world, education, and the collective myths—beautiful or destructive—that structure our society.
