Today I’m excited to welcome Benjamin Baldwin to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Benjamin Baldwin is a 26-year-old filmmaker and producer of the new documentary series Misunderstood, who describes himself as the stereotypical Millennial looking to create a happy work-life balance, while also striving for success.

Coming from a family in business and real estate, Benjamin wanted to do something that made him happy and that he loved to do. He wanted to create his own path.

While Benjamin didn’t study film, it was always a passion of his, and through internships, he worked his way up to a staff position at Saturday Night Live’s production company in New York. Eventually, his path led him to freelance, working with VICE, ESPN, National Geographic, the History Channel, MTV, and more, as well as working on his own creative projects on the side.

Most recently, Benjamin launched a passion project digital docu-series called .

His mission with the project is to give a more raw and real look at what it means to a Millennial today and help others understand that our way of life is the pathway to the future.
