Ben joined the Project Energize team in early 2015 as an Energizer for schools in the Matamata-Piako district. Having grown up in Kiwitahi, he knows the area well and enjoys being able to get to know all the children and teachers from his schools.
Ben also brings a wealth of knowledge to his role, having completed a conjoint degree in Sport & Leisure Studies as well as Business Management - plus a graduate diploma in Teaching to boot! This certainly comes in handy for Ben, as his favourite part of the job is being able to teach kids how to have fun while being physically active.
Ben's favourite healthy food is watermelon and when he's not in schools or the office you will probably catch him out on the rugby field.
