Growing up in a haunted forest outside of a small Minnesotan town, Ben Hanson's first exposure to the world of gaming was through an old Apple II. With that hook firmly set, a similar love for video production took root through the creation of gaming-themed videos with friends. These passions led him to a degree in Media Studies from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. It was there that the great schism occurred: he began professionally producing videos while reading about/playing games in his spare time. He has produced videos for the Ordway Center and the University of Minnesota and spent two and a half years at a community television station called CTV North Suburbs where he was awarded a Regional Emmy for his work. His two great loves were finally reunited when he was hired on as Game Informer's Video Producer, and they lived happily ever after... or something like that.
