Hello, my name is Ben. I'm a gonzo rock and roll journalist in my mid-twenties hell-bent on roaming the globe with a backpack, a skateboard, a pile of beatnik novels and my best friend Claire by my side.
I love Vonnegut, Kerouac, Bukowski, Lester Bangs, rock and roll and lounge-room philosophy. I've travelled through Japan, across Europe and America - I'd be happy chasing spontaneous adventures meeting new friends and experiencing new cultures everyday for the rest of my life.
I like basketball, good movies, good conversation and have been known to get a little 420 friendly on occasion.
I'm leaving Brisbane in June with Claire. Were heading to Tokyo for the start of what could be an infinite adventure of the rest of my life... You have to start somewhere to get anywhere.
