Explorer | Presenter | Speaker

My greatest passion lies in exploring my mental and physical limits in some of the world’s most unique locations and terrains. I am fascinated by unique cultures and ways of life, getting to understand how communities survive and thrive in extreme environments. My great love is for story-telling and documentaries, taking people with me on a journey to explore the far reaches of our planet Earth.

 

I believe that it is when we challenge ourselves, and step outside our comfort zone, that we grow. My mission back at home and through my motivational speaking is to show others that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things. Four years ago I quit my 9-5 and embarked on the adventure of a lifetime forging a career as an explorer, endurance athlete, presenter, and speaker. My expeditions and work have taken me to some amazing corners of the world, but there is still so much more to discover.
