Ben Paddon is a British-born writer, actor and geek humorist currently living in Los Angeles. He was born the same day Chernobyl exploded, although he maintains he has an airtight alibi with at least three witnesses.
He’s the creator, Director, co-Writer and Host of PortsCenter, a webseries which looks at unique and interesting ports of videogames. The first season wrapped up at the end of 2013, and a second season will follow in Spring 2014.
He’s the co-creator and Head Writer for the scifi-comedy webcomic Jump Leads. In 2008-09 Ben co-wrote the popular web mini-series Boomer’s Day Off, which to date has been viewed over 2.1 million times on YouTube alone. Ben is also a semi-regular contributor to the Doctor Who fansite Unlimited Rice Pudding!.
He has been a guest on BBC Radio Five Live’s Game On to offer his thoughts on the wonky videogame review scale, and has appeared in at least one episode of popular sing-along teen angst-a-thon, Glee. No, really.
Ben enjoys sitcoms, video games, eating Pop Tarts, and writing biographies of himself in the third person. His favourite shape is the oblong.
