Benjamin's acting experience comes from his youth where he was determined to make acting & dancing his career happen since his first New Zealand WOW quest high school performance competition in 2004 of Alice in Wonderland by Menzies College & drama tutor, Trudy Anne Rowe.
He began to study towards his acting qualification And a determined individual thriving on extending his range & abilities & being apart of widely artistic projects.
Benjamin has played roles 10 years younger than himself, roles demanding an aspect of sex appeal such as "Pepper" from the Mamma Mia! musical, to roles less demanding.
Most recently Benjamin was involved in the "The Next Best thing" written, directed & produced by the award-winning Chaz Harris, playing the role of "Alex". An early 30's bar owner recently scorned by love who is the core of a close knitted friendship between himself & three other young gay men, looking for love.
