Ben Helms

DAD, DRUMMER, DESIGNER

After growing up just a stone’s throw from the Artists of Lucas, Ben left to seek his fame and fortune in Los Angeles. After many majors and a couple degrees, he decided graphic design was his true calling in life, so much so that people even paid him to conduct these services for them. He somehow convinced an amazing woman to marry him along the way, as well as stumbled into a few fantastic children. When he’s not designing or doing MOLMF homework (playing old video games), he’s either punishing his drum kit or reading his infant daughters some bedtime stories.
