After spending nearly 20 years living on the island of St John in the US Virgin Islands, Ben and his family were unexpectedly uprooted by a couple of record-breaking hurricanes in 2017. Having lost so much in this event, they decided to change things up entirely. Ben and his wife, Jen, bought an RV and took off to explore North America with their two children, Nicky and Dani, and two dogs. Eighteen months, twenty states and 5 provinces later, they eventually found their way to the Mad River Valley and Yestermorrow.
Ben's background as a sailboat captain and the GM at their family owned restaurant on St John, ZoZo's Ristorante, makes him adept at handling a multitude of unique and challenging situations daily. When he's not on campus, you'll find him out with his family hiking, mountain biking and trying to figure out this whole "winter" thing.
