  • Descripción

    Hello! My name is Ben. I have a bachelor's degree in English Literature and a master's degree in Fine Art. I live near Philadelphia, USA, and have also lived several years in New York City. I have had the good fortune to spend multiple months in several countries including Iceland, Russia, China, India, Denmark, France, and Kenya.

    In January, 2024, I spent three weeks as a native English-speaking conversational teaching assistant, interacting with 12 to 17-year-old students at the British Language Academy in Berrechid, Morocco. It was definitely the most rewarding cultural experience I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of. I very much enjoy learning from and engaging with people from all cultures and ages!

    Although I'm 61, I think it's fair to say that many people I meet are somewhat shocked to discover that I am not in my mid-40's. Bless them :) I enjoy hiking and biking and participating in a variety of sports, especially basketball, flag (American) football, softball, darts, ping pong, pickelball and tennis. I'm also a fan, if not very skilled at futbol, or soccer as we call it in the States.

    After graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1987, I worked as a features newspaper reporter and photographer for 10 years. Following that, I established an interior/exterior residential painting company that I owned for 12 years. I have experience in storytelling and public speaking. While in art school, I specialized in Found Object contemporary sculpture, and was a teaching assistant for three years.

    I have much interest in history, both ancient and modern. I was a docent for two years at a world-renowned archeological museum. I like history and nature documentaries, and documentary films in general. I also recently volunteered for two years with an international environmental organization which included three months writing and photography project research in Kenya. I also was coordinator for the organization's social media.

    Non-smoker. Vegetarian/Vegan-friendly. Social drinker, agreeable to anywhere that is alcohol-free.

    Lover of all animals, especially cats and dogs. Fully vaccinated (double boosted).

    As a former business owner, I understand the importance of being a responsible, reliable, good-natured, hard-working, self-starting team player.

    Please feel free to reply with any questions.

    Ben
