Welcome Friend, it’s a pleasure to virtually meet you! My name is Ben, I write articles and web copy for brands that are motivated to stand out in the health and wellness industry. My writing is professional, personable, and engaging. Readers love my work because of my warm sense of humor and positivity.
I’m CRAZY about words. So much so that I carried a scrabble board to the top of a mountain!
But enough about writing! I’m more than just a sexy set of fingers. I am a proud father of two incredible little humans, and a faithful husband to the most patient and loving woman on the planet. We currently live in Minnesnowta, U.S.A., but we’re making plans for a more gypsey-esque lifestyle. This summer we’ll be starting construction on our 5th-wheel tiny home, and when we’re done we’ll live in it full time while we travel around the country, homeschooling our children and seeking adventure.

I am a Registered Nurse, with over three years of healthcare experience. I’ve worked in both the hospital and home settings, providing hands on nursing care, education, and health-coaching to patients. My nursing education had equipped me to analyze academic research, consolidate the data, and then educate my patients with relevant advice. I still work part-time in acute care, but I have taken a step back to focus on writing.

I made my first foray into the wide world of online marketing and brand development, when my wife and I started our little “Adventure Preparedness” brand, PreparNation, late in 2017.We believe that life is a Great Adventure, and we want to help people get the most out of every minute. We publish free information and guides, and sell products to help people get ready for their next adventure. From rock climbing, to road tripping, to backpacking, our mission is to make adventuring accessible to all.

I have learned A LOT while starting this business and growing our brand. I’ve learned about SEO, content marketing, persuasive writing, brand development, web design, and so much more. I’ve learned how to craft writing that compels people to act. I’ve learned to write articles that satisfy both humans and algorithms, so that search engines will put our page in front of eyes, and when people land they will be compelled to keep reading. We still have a long way to go before our mission is fully realized, but we are patient and growth is steady.
Primarily, I write to have a positive impact on the well-being of the humans that I am fortunate enough to share this beautiful planet with. I have a knack for taking topics that are difficult for most people to understand, and finding a way to make them fun to learn about.

I care about my legacy. About the mark I’m making on the world. My mission is to contribute to the “good” in the world. I aspire to be a trusted voice in the wellness space. I hope that my writing will help people reach their goals and grow into their “best self”. I write because, with the incredible connectivity of the internet, I am able to spread my message of health and joy around the world.
