ME_so now you know my name, ben wiley.
pronouced just like the cartoon, Wile E. Coyote.
i always thought that could be a good nickname but i was born a couple decades too late.
here is selfie i took in my bathroom. ➠➠➠
i’m slightly older than i look.
most people don’t put their age online but i constantly find myself googling or linkedining to see when someone graduated highschool just to calculate how old they are.
i graduated in 2010.
which makes me 27.
i’ll save you the math.
i was born and raised in portland.
my house had a 90 foot hand-dug well.
i always wanted to climb down it but i climbed trees instead.
i played soccer competitively (sadly, not professionally) for the majority of my life. now I play in Chinatown on a team called tbd F.C.
i currently live in Brooklyn.
my wifi is LePetiteChateau.
i don’t speak french but paris is one of my favorite cities.
i’m dating my highschool sweet heart.
we don’t own a dog yet. it’s sad.
but we’re happy.
in my youth, i fabricated and installed granite in houses i’ll never afford.
i wrote for a beauty PR firm in london called Amazing PR.
it was not that amazing.
i survived 72andSunny’s creative residency program, 72U.
logged some time in the 72 LA office and then helped get the NY office off the ground.
i’ve also done some pro-bono design work for UNICEF.
