Ben Light

Ben Light is a maker, designer, and Cash Cab contestant. Ben's work has been included in exhibitions by the Museum of Arts and Design, the MoMA Design Store, the Cameron Art Museum, the American Design Club, and Core77. He earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University and a Masters from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). Currently, he is a Fellow and adjunct professor at ITP.

Ben splits his time between New York City and the Pennsylvania Poconos, where he gets his hands on plenty of naturally fallen trees.

Yes his name is Light, yes he makes lamps, and yes he may love his lathe just a little too much.
