</center> As promised, and as procrastinated... a new biographical sketch. Dantesprayer is an online collection of snapshots ripped into words. Moments in time that inspire me, sadden me, even bore me. They have all captured my attention and have found themselves a home, decorated with electrons and twelve-point font.
Benj, or Ben as most people know him, is a public health educator for an STD program, which means that he gets to talk about sex all day... but it's usually drippy, smelly peens and va-jayjays. He has lived in New York state all of his life, with plans and hopes to change that in the near future. His career goals include working in college health promotions, inspiring people of all ages to improve their lives in search of a piece of nirvana. In addition, he wants to eventually own and operate a bed and breakfast, bookstore and cafe with his closest friends.
He writes poetry, often bad prose, and seldom cares for such nuances as meter or rhyme. He is an artist of sorts, enthralled with the image more than the process. He is an amateur photographer, currently in the market for a new SLR camera (donations are gladly accepted). He is a twin, a libra, and gay.
