Arachnologist based in Melbourne, Australia; focusing on Australian spiders, particularly Sparassidae (Huntsman spiders). I have always had a particular fascination in the natural world but have always been particularly fascinated in arthropods. I am the spider specialist member of the Entomological Society of Victoria.

I currently do ID's for mainly the following taxa which I have grouped in this project: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/ben-s-ids

Currently working on a field guide for huntsman spiders of Australia. It is nearly complete!!!
