    Ben Darby is a young and charismatic individual with a variety of interests and a free spirit that drives him to pursue them. He completed a bachelor's degree in nutrition and exercise science at the University of Nebraska and is certified as a personal trainer and as a strength coach. Being a creative, he does not like to dedicate all of his time to one thing, so he spends his work hours as a personal trainer, independent insurance agent, an actor/model, and even occasionally drives for Uber. Although that job list might seem overwhelming, it allows him to work on his own schedule and pursue his other passions and interests. When he is not working, you can catch him practicing martial arts, hiking with his dog (Oliver), or taking it easy and reading a good book with a hot cup of coffee. Ben has shown a strong presence since a young age and has had an acute sense of humor since he could walk. He has an enthusiasm for life that leads him to go to new places and try new things, including doing stand-up comedy for 7 months ("just for fun") and traveling to Spain on a whim. You will find that he is very kind, fun, and easy to talk to, and he brings an energy to the room that lifts everyone around him upward.
