Ben Mullin, Riekes Fernside Alumni

A successful photographer and cinematographer, Ben Mullin attributes much of his success to the Riekes Center. Ben began training with Gary at Fernside when he was set on being a football player at Menlo High School. “Once I realized, through weight training with Gary, that long term goals are the product of many short term goals that you follow through on, it opened my mind to the idea that I could really do anything I was passionate about if I just had a plan...I'm certain that the early lessons I realized at the Riekes Center were integral to helping me achieve what has become a passion and goal of mine...to travel the world and film interesting people and places.”  Which is exactly what he was doing when we caught up with him for this interview.
