Ben is a native of Windsor, ON, Canada, born in Leamington, ON and also lived in Montreal, QC, Canada.
Ben was instrumental in Windsor Minor's bid to host the All Ontario Championships in 2002-03. The highlight of his Hockey involvement was in the 2006-07 season when Windsor won the O.M.H.A. (Ontario Minor Hockey Association) Juvenile Championship Title for the first time in over 30 years.
It is through this "forever" link with former Windsor players that came to LTU, Phil Lywood and others, that Ben came to LTU in the hope of helping build an ACHA Championship Team. Since starting with LTU in the 2011-12 season, Ben has focused on team organization, communication, and scouting activities.
Ben has been married to his wife, Sarah, since April 2013. They currently have one daughter, Alia, who is two and a half years old and are expecting their second child in early December 2016. Ben and his family currently reside in Grosse Pointe Park, MI. When Ben is not with his family or with LTU, he works for Ford Motor Company as the Electrical Integration Supervisor on the all-new Lincoln Continental. Ben is also currently working to complete his second year of Ford’s Engineering Management Master’s Program.
