Dan (Benji) Benjamin | International Man of Mystery

A little bit about Benji …
He has a Film Degree (which very nearly could have been a Costume Design degree)
He has a Multimedia Degree (though we don’t think he’s ever actually used it)
He is the maker of some very clever short films (and once starred in one)
He’s the best mate of Dan Z (and is known to Dan Z’s mum as “Nice Dan”)
He’s a founding member of Frisbee Squad
He wins dance-offs
He has an iron stomach
He’s an all round nice guy
He used to live amongst the kangaroos, but now lives just a short bike ride away – though his housemates swear he’s never actually home … probably because he’s somewhere playing pinball
