Ben joined Curse in 2012 after founding the DayZ wiki. He co-founded Gamepedia and began expanding it into what it is today. In his spare time he loves playing games, watching Detroit sports, and animals. He used to play top level competitive CS 1.6 with team shockwave and raided WoW with Gummi Bears and Exodus achieving multiple top 10 world boss kills.
Benjamin got his start with games before he could even read, and even learned to read with the help of Reader Rabbit games. While he also loves books, karaoke, cooking, cartoons and fine spirits, gaming has remained his #1 passion and hobby. Benjamin joined Fandom along with all of Curse, where he was Gamepedia's first Community Manager and then spent more than five years helping build communities there.
