Ben was born and raised in South Florida, where he grew up at the beach. An accomplished soccer player, he competed throughout high school and college, before bringing that same athletic commitment and perseverance to the pool. His passion for teaching water safety extends to all ages, from infants to adults and to those with special needs. When he's not in the water, you can find Ben on one of NYC's many soccer fields. With a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology and a love for sport, Benjamin is working toward becoming a Physical Therapist.
