Your charming and convivial host, Ben, has lived extensively around Europe, settling for the next decade or so in Berlin. He is a long-time vegan and the apartment is vegetarian. He spends most of his time growing vegetables and blogging about it, singing Queen songs loudly and humming out of tune. He can be quieted with a gentle "shhh".
He has previously been a librarian, language teacher, party organiser, computer programmer (you have almost definitely been on at least one website he had some part in), park ranger, hand model, professional story teller and sought after DJ.
He is a fantastic cook. You can tell this by the bewildering number of different pots and pans he has.
