My name is Ben Murrie, and I live in Austin, TX with my wife, Shawna, and our two boys. Jeremiah just turned three and Davis is seven months old. By the end of the summer, I will hopefully be done with my MS in Educational Psychology. Work (www.catharsisproductions.com) is an odd conversation for me, because even those close to me don't fully understand my job. Essentially I am an educational actor, touring the country with an improv comedy program that combines audience interaction and scripted material to facilitate a discussion about sexual assault prevention. I work with college students and more recently, at many military installations. This past year, I began traveling internationally with work. This has been my job for almost seven years, and though I began as an actor, I now consider myself more of an educator. This is the reason for the degree, my ambitions in the field of educational programming were starting to outrun my credentials. With full time work, school, and kids, I don't have much time for hobbies. I try to exercise a lot, and I enjoy cooking for my family. I help out at Church when I can, and occasionally take the motorcyle out for a spin. I have really been enjoying my schooling with OSU, and am looking forward to this semester. Feel free to Facebook me, I like to keep tabs on people that way.
