Ben grew up in Portland, Oregon, where he learned to love adventure. After spending time in Massachusetts for college, a semester abroad in Nepal, and a summer leading outdoor trips in Colorado, he now resides in Southern California. Now, with a full time office job, he feels the need to spend all his free time outdoors. Whether he spends it climbing, surfing, hiking, backpacking, or just playing Spikeball on the beach, you can bet that he's being active somewhere. Fun facts about Ben: he spent 8 years playing the tuba and grew up with pet goats!
