Dr. Fisler has more than 20 years of experience as a professional actor and technician with such companies as the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, Muhlenburg Summer Music Theatre, the Chesapeake Shakespeare Festival, The Capital Fringe Festival, Whoodunnit for Hire, Toby's Dinner Theatre, and the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. He has performed in national commercials, HBO and independent films, and television and radio.

Ben's professional career has shown him two things: 1) If he can make money in the performing arts, anyone can, and 2) Making money in the performing arts is about tireless commitment, a real love for the arts, and constantly searching for projects. He runs a job/networking email list to encourage students in the major to seek out performance and production jobs and start their careers now. Many HCC students have already landed jobs in professional theatre, film, and television, including the recent Netflix project House of Cards.
