Origins

Ilan Benjamin lost half the hearing in his left ear serving in the Israel Defense Forces. He’s been loud in person and on the page ever since. In 2012, after completing his military service, Ilan was accepted into USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. There, he self-published a novel based on his experiences in the IDF, executive produced an award-winning interactive series and signed a development deal with Project Greenlight Digital. Currently a Script Coordinator on FOX’s Lethal Weapon, Ilan continues to write what he knows best: action. When he’s not writing, you’ll often find Ilan wandering the woods. Even a soldier-turned-screenwriter likes his quiet.
