A Toi Whakaari graduate, Ben is widely recognised from his role in the New Zealand show, The Almighty Johnsons. 

Outside of work, Ben enjoys riding his motorcycle and traveling. He's also interested in science, so enjoys the technical medical jargon he uses in his role as Drew. 

Ben likes working on Shortland Street because you never know what's just around the corner. When he joined that cast, he found that it was very easy to make friends, "everybody is lovely, they were very welcoming," he says.
