Ben was born in the UK and was promptly shuffled across the universe to Auckland at a young age. He is a total geek but tries to be pretty casual about it. He was sucked into theatre in his teens, which led to a lot of time on stage, as well as writing and directing when he could. After spending four years as high-school Drama teacher, Ben decided that it was about time for him to move on and see what else the world has to offer. However, wherever he goes he will always be sure to return home to his best-friends/cats.
