HEY I'M BEN,
Like I said, I’m sort of a feelings kinda guy. I love Saturday brunch. Me, coffee, the paper, red chilli scrambled eggs and multigrain toast. All is right in the world during Saturday brunch.
I’m a sucker for both tortellini carbonara and Lionel Ritchie’s All Night Long.
Family is everything to me. I love my wife Anna more than all the tortellini carbonara in the world. I still remember the feeling of buying her engagement ring. I had all these plans, for weeks away, down by the river where she grew up, down on one knee, but once I had that ring in my hand I couldn’t wait. So instead I put together a last minute candle lit dinner and asked her then and there. If you saw her, you’d understand. Not only is she beautiful and funny and smart she’s also strong and inspiring and did I say beautiful?
She’s bought me the two greatest gifts a man could ever ask for…….my two little munchkins, Maddie and Will. They’ve completely derailed my sacred Saturday morning brunches but I’m totally fine with that. They light up my world in unimaginable ways each and every day. I’m so bloody grateful.
I not so secretly love the stock market and aviation and other square type things. I’m totally okay with that.
I would choose beer over wine, a late night out with friends over a quiet night home on the couch (pre kids). There’s nothing as much fun as a dress up party with your mates. I will always choose laughter and love. Travel and adventure.
Travel is where I found my all consuming love of photography. To date I’ve loved spending time in South East Asia, specifically Cambodia and Burma, South America, especially Argentina and Patagonia and safari in Tanzania, Africa! I’ve hit up 39 countries in all. Ahhhh, the travel bug is real, alive and well. Want free travel advice? I’m your guy!
That’s me in a nutshell.
