Hailing from the murky, unexplored interior of darkest America, Ben has knocked around more careers than some people have had hot meals (so long as we're talking about very young and/or hungry people).
Recently displaced as the tallest member of the support team by the arrival of Tom, Ben's new stated goal is to one day displace Arlen as Noble Samurai's youngest employee.
Ben came to Australia nearly 5 years ago with nothing more than the shirt on his back, a wife and kids, several large travel cases and a containerload of household goods following along behind on a cargo vessel. Since then he's acquired modest real estate holdings, a small car and a bar-b-cue, but has stubbornly refused to acquire the local dialect (or "tork 'Strine")
When asked what he does in his spare time, he stares blankly at you as if the words were unfamiliar.
