Raised on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia, my early life revolved around surfing and exercising. I was fortunate enough to have parents who instilled in me a love of travel. I’ve surfed on every continent except Antarctica; I’ve snowboarded in Australia, Canada, Alaska, New Zealand, Patagonia and Austria; and I’ve climbed and hiked in Alaska, Canada, New Zealand, Patagonia and Australia.
In 2011, I finished a Masters in Media Arts & Production at the University of Technology Sydney. I have worked in the TV industry for years and by far the highlight was being Bear Grylls’ stunt double for a Nissan X-Trail commercial. My focus is now on adventuring, writing, filmmaking and professional speaking.
