The healing power of nature
Strong early interests in nutrition and cooking, health and wellness, spirituality, songwriting, literature, and human beings led him to an undergraduate degree in linguistics from the University of Washington, a stint as a head cook at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, and being flown over to England in his early twenties to open up for a well-known former rock band lead-singer at a secret pop-up show.
Additionally, Ben’s early upbringing instilled in him a particular appreciation for the finer points of pumping water by hand.
