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. This is sometimes pretty tiring and wearying work, but mostly it’s interesting, challenging, and rewarding: I love it.

I’m a movie buff, a music fan, and a reader who wishes I had more time. 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 bikes.

If you are interested, my CV is here.

About the site

This site is a playground for me to write about stuff I’ve been doing or thinking through. I like writing, which is about the only creative thing that I do, and I enjoy it as its own reward. I don’t have an audience in mind or a set of consistent topics that I intend to write about.
