Troy Benjamin is a Los Angeles based writer, producer, publisher, and sometimes very vocal lounge singer at the Holiday Inn, Paramus*...
As a feature film producer, screenwriter, novelist, comic book writer/self-publisher, DVD and Blu-ray Supplemental Content Producer, blogger, ENG producer, and amateur (read: poor) right wing hockey player, Troy doesn't get a whole lot of sleep but spends a whole lot of time doing the things that he loves.
Having been born and raised in the small town of Franktown, Colorado - a home to outdoors adventurers and mountain ski bums who braved the worst of I-70 conditions just to be the first to thrash through untracked powder, Troy's restlessness and want for adventure (complete with having several sage-like mentors along the way) would have made Joseph Campbell proud. His journeys since childhood have taken him from coast to coast, from productions in New Zealand and Rarotonga, to the strange and often treacherous jungles of beautiful downtown Burbank, California.
Troy graduated from Los Angeles' Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor of Arts in film production. After page checking what seemed to be ten thousand scripts and learning how to make several cups of coffee as an unpaid intern for several years, Troy then worked under a personal hero and creative film producer Trevor Albert for four years. There Troy assisted Albert in the 20th Century Fox films "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" and "Because of Winn-Dixie."
Troy is a prolific writer, having written Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season One Declassified, several comic books for his self-published label, and is also currently working on several publications and screenplays of varied genres.
In addition, Troy has acted as a producer on dozens of high profile studio DVD and Blu-ray releases, EPKs, publicity reels, theatrical trailers, and television commercials through his employment through Trailer Park, Herzog & Company and Buddha Jones. His clients represent the top studios in the entertainment industry including Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures, Summit Entertainment, Paramount Pictures, Marvel Studios/Television, Sony Electronics of America, and Walt Disney Pictures, Home Entertainment and Resorts.
*Note: Troy is not actually a lounge singer. But he aspires to be. He's also not a huge fan of having to talk in the third person on his main website bio and knows that his friends and acquaintances will be poking fun any time now.
