Hey there!

My name is Ben Leit (pronounced like "light"), and I'm a 23 y/o multi-hyphenate creative. I graduated from Hamilton College with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy & Theatre (Cum Laude, Class of 2022), and received the Senior Prize in Theatre. I'm also a graduate of The Second City's Comedy Studies program (2021), and Newark Academy (2011-2018).

I'm lucky to work as a Creative Communications Consultant for Rob Menendez for Congress (NJ-8). I recently served as a campaign assistant/field organizer for Congressman Menendez. I've previously worked for Senator Cory Booker as a Senate intern, and as a campaign intern with Cory2020.


In tandem, I work as a PA for Melchior Productions,

creating concerts, charity galas, and live events in NYC.

I've had the privilege to work at Love Rocks, SummerStage, & Radio City Music Hall – for acts such as James Taylor, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Nile Rodgers & Chic​, John Mayer, Jane Fonda, and more.

In my free time, I work as an actor and model for television ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," "Full Circle"), film (IfBrain Dead), and commercials (the Empire State Building, PENN 1 NYC, Nokia). I also write, produce, and release original music, which has garnered 500,000+ streams.

Thank you for being here.
