Ben loves glacier guiding, cross courty skiing and stretching other's comfort zones. His favourite colour is blue. He is a fan of The North Queensland Cowboys (a rugby league). His favourite kid's joke is "What's the best thing to put in a cake? Your teeth!"
Ben is from Austalia and has lived in Norway for the last year and a half, and now he lives here in CANADA! He has led young people on cross cultural experiences for the last 8 years.

In the future Ben wants to guide on more glaciers and mountains around the world.
