Ben grew up in Essex and was educated at Framlingham College. He developed his love for sports and exercise from a young age and represented the school in the first team for rugby, hockey and cricket from the age of 16.
Following school, he became a ski instructor in Canada before travelling in central America. He worked with children as a cricket coach and loved seeing the joy and development that sport brought to the children. Ben read environmental science at Queen Mary’s University of London, joining TARKA as an instructor alongside his studies. He quickly established himself as a firm favourite with the children so we couldn’t resist snapping him up on a full time basis on the completion of his Masters.
In his free time Ben loves playing and watching sport (especially Chelsea), heading back to his family home on the Suffolk coast whenever he can.
