Ben started the violin at the late age of four. It was his parent’s idea. Not long after, he decided that it was a great idea and decided to play forever. After chamber music lessons as a teenager with Hugh Maguire, Peter Norris and many other great musicians, he knew there was no other path for him and is now living his dream, playing some of the best music ever written.
Life is now complete, with his wife and two children Finley and Mirabelle. He is passionate about food, and is currently exploring purées and ways of disguising green vegetables. Running used to keep him fit, but right now he is on a break while the children learn to sleep through the night. One day he will run a marathon like his old man.
Ben can also juggle, and once he tried flaming torches.
