Inspired by TV shows like The X-Files which were popular while he was in high school, Ben cemented an interest in both a desire to work in public service for an investigative agency and an insatiable desire to explore mysteries of the unknown.  After graduating college, he worked for several private and public agencies, including investigating child sex crimes and severe physical abuse on the Utah County Sex Crimes Task Force.  His training and work later brought him to work in the position of Special Agent for the FBI.  His time serving at the state and federal levels gave him over six years of formal experience in investigating a wide range of crimes and national security details.  Feeling as though he might someday return to public service, Ben also felt compelled to seize an opportunity presented to him to assist in forming a new investigative reality TV show.  Departing from the mainstream paranormal shows prevalent at the time, this new show would not only conduct observation-based field investigations; it would focus primarily on alleged evidence already at hand.  The age of the Internet has brought with it the sharing of thousands of allegedly paranormal viral videos and photographs.

Having been with Fact or Faked from the beginning, Ben leads a team of five specialists who travel the world looking for answers to these mysteries.  Confronting the relationship of seeing and believing, the team has witnessed and documented dozens of unbelievable events.  Many people recite the phrase, "I'll believe it when I see it."  Balancing an innate human longing for rational explanation with the acceptance of witnessing undeniably strange events- Aliquandro videre non est satis- Sometimes seeing is not enough.
