Ben is a former National, International, Grand Prix and World Junior Team competitor in singles figure skating. He was a three-time junior medalist at the US National Figure Skating Championships (2000-2002). At age seven, Benjamin began his competitive skating training under the direction of coaches Ann Eidson (1991 to 2004) and Ted Engelking (1990 to 2003) with the St. Paul FSC. Ben trained around the world with Alexei Mishin (1998 to 2004), a world and Olympic gold medal coach. In 2006 Ben moved to Michigan to train with coaches Igor Shpilband and Marina Zoueva in ice dance where he earned gold medals for all of the dances. Ben developed and leads a successful high-level group lesson format for competitive skaters in both singles and pairs disciplines. He runs off and on-ice group classes on a daily basis for all levels of skaters allowing for additional time spent on edge, jump and spin exercises in a fun and competitive environment. He is experienced in the use of the pole jump harness and the electronic spinner with harness.
