Ben is from Huntington Beach, California. Since a child he had been
taught to respect and enjoy the outdoors. He has camped all around
California, from the arid and rundown area of Salton Sea to the
isolated and verdant Lost Coast. His favorite activities are soccer,
swimming, bodysurfing, cycling, and of course- camping.
Ben graduated from UC Santa Cruz in the Fall of 2009 with a BS in
Marine Biology. His passion for conservation has brought him to SCA's
Trail Corps. He wants to pursue a career in marine conservation,
focusing on sustainable fisheries. He will be part of Umatilla
National Forest Crew 3 and is excited to make new friends, build new
trails. and have a great time!
