BEN SOSTRUM is a freelance actor and the Executive Producer of the Film Division of Offshoot Productions LLC, a local multimedia production company. He is a graduate of The Ohio State University Theatre Department and an alumnus of the CATCO Acting Apprentice Program.
He has also travelled a very circuitous route to get here, originally having aimed for the manned space program. He attempted (and failed) to be an aerospace engineer and instead went for a degree in astronomy from OSU — in the process, somehow ending up with that aforementioned theatre degree as well. Why he decided to use the latter to make a living — instead of the former — is something he sometimes ponders. Eventually, he always remembers why.
In his spare time, he makes films and mixed-media sculpture work, spends time with his boyfriend, weirds out his roommates at three in the morning and occasionally fixes the odd computer.
