I grew up in Sydney, Australia in a family that never went camping or on outdoors adventures.

Therefore, it came as somewhat of a surprise to discover hiking and camping in my mid 20’s and it fast became somewhat of an obsession.

Since then, I’ve become a leader with the Sydney Bush Walkers Club and Search Manager with the Bushwalkers Wilderness Rescue Squad, an affiliate squad of the Volunteer Rescue Association.

The outdoors totally changed my life and I’m keen to share my knowledge and stories with others – hoping that they’ll catch the bug too!

When I’m not out in the bush, I can be found running a Production and Consultancy company based in Sydney, shooting in remote and logistically tricky locations such as jungles, volcanoes and on the high seas.

In July 2013, as an avid user of their products for over 10 years, I was delighted to be appointed a Macpac Ambassador.



I would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands through which I hike and live, and pay my respects to Elders past and present. I recognise the strength, resilience and capacity of Aboriginal people in this land.
