About Ben

Ben in London
On a cold day in Trafalgar Square

I grew up in London and ended up back here again after thinking for a while that I didn’t want to be. I was a teacher for five years, and have worked for charities since 2010. I now manage volunteers who work in prisons for Fine Cell Work. I love it.

Among other things, I’m a Quaker, a movie buff, a music fan, and a reader. If I had more money I’d spend some more time travelling, but I’m lucky enough to have a job I love. I also like cycling and tinkering with my bikes.

If you are interested, my CV is here.
