Ben Lepp grew up in Oregon and graduated with an Ed. degree from OSU in 2005. While studying to be a teacher he had the opportunity to teach abroad in Jalisco, Mexico, which is where he also discovered he had an interest in exploring and learning about foreign lands.
He began his career as a teacher in S. Korea from 2006-2008 working at an English Academy and teaching various grades. From 2008-2014 he was the homeroom teacher for two 1st grade classes at a Thai private school in Bangkok.
Quite a different experience from the classroom, still sporting proper callouses!
