Benjamin was born in a small town in North Dakota. Raised within a strict catholic belief system, he experienced a fear based relationship to God and spirituality that eventually led him to nihilism. After a couple run-ins with the law, he dropped out of college, moved to California and began to pursue a career in painting. His exposure to entheogenic culture reconnected him once more to a sense of connection to spirituality but this time, from an inward space of potentiality.
