Benn grew up in the hills of the Hunter valley, Australia. Being the oddball, Benn was the creative/artistic member of the family. While performing in the musical adaption of “Taming of the Shrew”, Benn shocked his parents, and the audience, by coming out from behind a shower curtain in nothing but a bright, floral towel to sing “Splish Splash”. Benn knew performing was his passion from that moment.
