Ben was born in London (within the sound of the Bow Bells), but grew up in Carmarthenshire (to the sound of cow bells). He trained in Drama at Liverpool John Moores University, before going onto work as an actor. After tragically breaking his ankle in rehearsals Ben was forced to get a “proper” job when he realised that the dole would not support his lavish lifestyle. He joined Spare Tyre Theatre Company in London as their Administrator with responsibility for coordinating inc.Theatre, a training course for learning disabled actors. It was here that Ben discovered a passion for working inclusively and specifically in drama with learning disabled performers. Since then he has amassed over 10 year’s experience in this field, in Cardiff with us, Spare Tyre in London and while on a sabbatical with Danza Mobile in Seville – with stints in-between as a chef in France and Greece, and as an English Teacher in Poland.
