ABOUT ME 2017-07-09T00:12:43+00:00

My name is Ben Hagarty.

I’m a Creative Director, Videographer, Photographer, Editor, Musician, Brand Marketing Wizard, & a G. I was born in Iowa & now live in Los Angeles, California. I’ve worked on a bunch of different shit with a bunch of different people, which has been coo. Hopefully this site is fun to explore. I learned how to build it all on my own (with the help of Jake Giebel) which took a shit ton of time but at least it’s personal…

I’ll add some more about me later… Through social media, I have had A LOT of people reach out to me… Creators of all kinds… They have asked me millions of questions (I even did this Reddit AMA to answer about 300 of them) & have wanted to collaborate. I think this is AWESOME. I just can’t keep track of everyones Instagram DM’s or snapchat messages, etc. etc… So I wanted to create the ‘CALLING ALL CREATORS’ page on this site to try and form a squad. If you create… Anything… like ANYTHING. I want you to fill this out. If you make videos like me, or started a small business selling lip gloss, fuck it – we are all being creative and trying to make a living off of it. Lets work together and test new ideas out, show off our work and ask for opinions. Fill out that form so I can know more about you and it will promt you to join my private Facebook group. This will be our space to converse and work together on shit.

Bye.

I’ll only send important shit to you - I promise

Conversations with Ben.

If you’re interested, I met up with my friends Matt and Chrxx over at the Genius Frequencies podcast. I shared a bit about my life story and experiences with Q on the Blank Face Tour. I also had an interview with my friend Scotty at Perspective Collective. He took that conversation and turned it into a lesson on his podcast with the focus of turning what you love into a job… I loved it.
