No one is off the hook!  Through Santa Rosa Junior College Theatre Arts In 2011 Ben was cast in The Importance of Being Earnest as Merriman the butler and other roles in subsequent years. Ben says that "Discovering Petaluma Radio Players has been like finding a diamond in the rough." He loves working with his fellow Players each week and looks forward to rehearsing and recording new radio theatre projects. "I realize we 
are not CBS," Ben adds, "however, learning as much as I can about how things work behind 
the scenes with our seasoned professionals is one that I wish to undertake further." In his spare time, Ben enjoys taking care of his Petaluma home, cooking, and staying fit. His other real job consists of more than 24 years devoted to working with Developmentally Disabled adults as a Social Worker.
