Ben was born and raised in Harare, Zimbabwe which is in Southern Africa. He graduated high school in 2016 and took the year after to travel around the continent as a professional photographer for a small start-up. In the summer of 2018, he moved to Dallas TX to join his mother and stepfather. He did 2 years of college at Brookhaven Community College and transferred to The University of Texas at Austin in the fall of 2020. He is now entering his senior year as a Government major. Ben enjoys writing, photography and any competitive sport. He enjoys heights with a view and late-night drives or bike rides. He also enjoys painting; he is not that good but he enjoys it nonetheless. He has worked at two burger places so his favorite food is anything that’s not a burger.
