Ben is an actor that is born from a writing background, so has a great respect in the art of bringing the words on the page to life. He never takes for granted how privileged he is to work in the creative arts, and approaches each opportunity with respect, passion and hard work. With a successful career in media including radio and advertising, he started as an DJ on air and followed his other passions becoming a Creative Writer, Content Director and Creative Director. Ben’s work has always involved creating and telling stories.Ben realised his true passion in acting while studying at NIDA with some of Australia’s great acting tutors, directors and storytellers. Above all he learnt the key to approaching each project, “with play”, otherwise known as “fun”. Above all there must be fun. He knows that each production is not about the actor, but a collaboration from an ensemble of cast and crew all wanting to create a story together.
