Benjamin grew up in the NSW snowy mountains in a family of avid skiers and started skiing himself when he was only 2 years old.
He decided to pursue his sport as he loves the feeling of the wind rushing by as he is skiing down a run, describing it as the best feeling in the world.
Benjamin also loves the adrenaline rush he gets when he competes, with everything coming down to that one moment and being able to show everyone how hard he has been working.
In 2019, Benjamin won gold at the National Alpine Interschools competition, he also placed 12th and 16th over the two days of competition at the Hotham Australia New Zealand Cup in Ski Cross.
