Director of Operations Ben Kukainis produces livestreams, edits and produces podcasts, manages social media and marketing, coordinates with the development team on web design, and oversees content publishing for Fantasy Points.
Ben began working for John Hansen at Fantasy Guru in 2013 as a Copy Editor. Since then, he has honed his skills in graphic design, video production, web design, and social media management; turning into--as John Hansen says--the “utility infielder” of the company. After leaving Fantasy Guru in 2018, Ben teamed up with Joe Dolan and Tom Brolley for “The Fantasy Free Agents” in 2019, producing podcasts and Daily Fantasy cheat sheets.
A lifelong Scarlet Knight, Ben received his Bachelor’s in English in 2009 and his Master’s in English in 2013 from Rutgers University, specializing in Gothic Literature. He has over 10 years teaching experience at the secondary and tertiary level, including 5+ years teaching Literature at Rowan University in South Jersey. When he’s not working with journalists and back-end developers for Fantasy Points, he’s teaching night class sections of Horror Literature.
