THE "DRAGON SLAYER: SURVIVING AND THRIVING

"Coach" Ben Wade is a: soccer coach, artistic director & conductor, world-class trumpet player, composer, world record kayak holder, actor, and the guy from CBS's "Survivor: Tocantins" and the subsequent, and most recent, "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" that was loved or hated, but nothing in between. He's been ranked with Jonny Fairplay, who lied about his grandmother's death, Richard Hatch, first "Survivor" winner (and nudist), and lovable Rupert Boneham, as one of the quirkiest characters ever to play the game.

Growing up in family of musicians, traveling across the globe, a thirst for adventure was born at an early age. Being witness of his parents devotion to the secret underground church in communist Russia and visiting the poorest slums in New Delhi are but a few events shaping his relentless hunger for achievement in all of his undertakings.

"A Voyage Beyond Reason," published in March of last year, tells the of the dangerous adventure "Coach" experienced setting the world record for the longest solo kayak expedition, which he undertook in 1996-7, kayaking alone from Baja, CA, to Punta Charambira, Colombia, SA. "Small Town, Big Symphony," the 2008 documentary, shows how Coach singlehandedly transformed a small prison town in northern California to a hot bed of classical culture, when he founded the non-profit organization, Susanville Symphony.

"Coach" will be appearing in the lead role in "180," to be released in November.
