Hey there. I started CCM in 2007 after losing my Chicago-based job. Nothing shakes you like having a job that you totally love be there one day, then gone the next. The experience of losing a job and starting my own business has really helped me understand the clients who have entrusted their marketing to the CCM team. The Journalism degree I earned from Ball State University provided me with a great love for words. Good content has never been more important in digital marketing.
When I am ‘off the clock’ you will find me working in my yard, walking the Pennsy Trail, spending time with our two dogs (Trudy & Molly), attending one of the many great festivals in Indiana, cooking up something on the grill, date night with my wife, spending time with family, attending church every Sunday and meeting monthly with other couples from our church.
My wife (we met on match.com) and I enjoy vacations, especially when it involves our favorite destination – Holden Beach, North Carolina. We stay plenty busy with our 5 children, 2 grand-daughters, 1 grandson and the lives of 41 family members.
CCM serves some pretty amazing business and nonprofit clients. Back in the day, it was just me. The CCM Team continues to grow. I’d love for you to get acquainted with our talented team below. They are very skilled and great at what they do. We’d love the opportunity to take your marketing to the next level. Give us a call.

I started working at CCM Marketing Agency in January of 2015 as “the intern” to learn web development in a real world work environment. I enjoyed every minute of my internship and I learned so much. During my internship everyone at CCM welcomed me with open arms. After my internship was complete I was very fortunate to be hired on as the web developer at CCM. I finally graduated from IUPUI in December of 2016 in there New Media, Informatics program.
When I am not working at CCM I am most likely at home reading a book, playing video games, or watching a new show on Netflix. I also spend my free time SCUBA diving when the weather is warm enough. I am a certified PADI Master Diver. I have dove in the Florida Keys, quarries, and the Disney Epcot Aquarium. I have seen and swam next to sharks, sea turtles, barracuda, and many fish. One day I hope to find an octopus on one of my diving adventures.
I use to breed and raise rabbits when I was in 4-H, I was a 10 year 4-H member. At one point I had 13 rabbits. I bred cinnamons. They are bred for their meat, but I never sold mine to be eaten. When the 4-H fair was over for that year, I would sale the babies to other 4-H members or new members to continue their 4-H career.
I also enjoy baking. Cupcakes are my specialty. When you come in maybe there will be a few fresh cupcakes in the office.

Hey!! What’s up, my name is Ben. How’s it going? My love for graphics started way back when I was in high school. From there, I went to college at International Business College and graduated in 2012.
Enough about work though. In my free time I like to be outdoors, and sing in my band Now And Then. I enjoy doing my own personal art projects as well. It’s a fun way to relax and express whatever feelings are in the forefront of my mind at that moment in my life. Click around and explore the CCM website for more fun, though!! Check out the other lovely people I work with to see what they’re up to in their regular lives!! So glad you stopped by.

Hello! I joined CCM in June of 2017 to help build Selfie Mouse as a brand name. I go to school at Indiana State University in Terre Haute to study Speech-Language Pathology. This is my first job that has not dealt with kids. I am looking forward to the new experiences and learning new skills!
I mentioned earlier that I have worked with kids. Along with this job, I nanny and babysit. I have also done child care in the past. When I have free time, I like to read and do crafts. One of my hobbies is playing my guitar. I also have a dog that I love to play with and take on walks.
When I can, I like to hang out with my friends and family. Whether that is just going for a drive with my best friend or chatting with my mom in the middle of the day, I always enjoy the conversations.
