Benny got started as a Flash Designer in 2010 working for Francis Ford Coppola on a team of four, where he wrote ActionScript and created Flash movies for Francis Ford Coppola Presents. While employed there, Benny documented the construction of the new Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville with interactive photo albums and a memorabiglia Flash web experience featuring film props and costumes from The Godfather, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Tucker. Benny is also the creator of Thorns & Spells — a free-to-play, 2D MMORPG that hosts a small community of players from around the world. More recently, Benny built and launched Peach Player — a cross-platform audio player that aims to democratize broadcasting.
I'm proud to announce the launch of my latest app – Peach Player. Peach Player is an embeddable audio player for podcasters and musicians. Upload and manage audio tracks, embed the player on your own website, and broadcast your message to the world. Check it out at peachplayer.com.
The video game I've been building for several years now is finally online! Sorry it took literally forever. Please help me beta test, if you're into 2D browser MMOs :) Link: Thorns & Spells
