About Ruben's Experience

Ruben is an actor and facilitator and has years of experience guiding organisations through the diversity and disability mazes and supporting their constructive growth.  Having studied acting in Los Angeles for two years has given Ruben the foundation he needed to build his career.  In 2005 Ruben was in a road traffic collision that required him to have his left leg amputated at the hip.  Using a combination of crutches and a wheelchair gives him the flexibility to act out a variety of scenarios, combined with the facilitation training he has received has allowed him to facilitate any training scenario, regardless of the subject or his disability.
