Ben Thompson is an Indianapolis-based writer originally from Michigan. Although born and raised a Hoosier, he’s thankful to have journeyed across large parts of the United States: a sightseeing tradition he continues to practice alongside his two rambunctious kids. When Ben isn’t researching playground industry trends, he’s likely hiking one of the local State Parks or cheering on his beloved Colts or BSU Cardinals. At Ball State, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Literature. He later complemented that education with a master’s in English from IUPUI. In the rare bits of spare time he gets indoors, Ben digs leafing through his growing collection of classic rock on vinyl or getting lost in a good book. He’s been a key player at PlaygroundEquipment.com since 2017. In his free time, he works on a novel that may or may not ever be completed, watches old movies, and spends entirely too much time playing video games. He is fascinated by pop culture, and well-versed in nerdy things like Indie Music and superhero comics. He is passionate about environmental and social justice issues, and likes animals so much that he doesn’t even eat them. One day he hopes to have significantly more numerous and inadvisable pets than are allowed by his current rental agreement.
