My greatest passions in life are travel and the outdoors.I feel at my happiest when I am out of my comfort zone exploring a new country or city, meeting people and enjoying the outdoors; trekking, hiking, paddling and cycling.

I am an avid nature enthusiast and a great believer that exposure to nature and the outdoors is beneficial to both physical and psychological well being. I enjoy learning about the environment, I like to think of myself as a true conservationist; creating, sharing and promoting the natural world.

I love to cook, read, spend time with my family and friends, go to the movies (mostly for the popcorn) and keep fit and healthy. I have a coffee obsession, I am a recreational sommelier, a burgeoning entrepreneur, an optimist and opportunist.

After finishing up a three and a half year stint in the Middle East in December 2010 I spent most of 2011 traveling South America and the USA, seeking out new experiences, adventures, people and skills.

I returned to Melbourne in October 2011 with the primary goal of spending some time with my family and created a mélange of a career for myself; leading food, walking and bicycle tours, facilitating team building events and studying Outdoor Recreation.

In May 2012 I fled from the Australian winter to the greener and sunnier pastures of Minong, Wisconsin and Birch Trail Camp to work as a Trip Leader. Summer 2012 was filled with leading groups of girls (Aged 7-15) on paddling and camping trips on the Namekogan River, BWCA and Lake Superior.

Currently I am traveling and volunteering via HelpX through Europe and the USA.
