I’m a cyclist, runner, lapsed adventure racer, brother, uncle, project manager, photographer, writer and small business owner.
My passion for the outdoors and natural landscapes has taken me to some of the world’s wild places. Yet I have merely scratched the surface, my curiosity fuels a desire to connect dots on a map both near and far, to recollect the sights and sounds of what were once just names on a map.
Working for over a decade in a corporate IT job, I decided it was time to see some more of this big wide world as ideas and dreams began to outgrow the standard two week holiday from work.
Questioning the direction life was taking me, I quit my job and hit pause on my career. Away from the daily noise and distraction of modern day life, Facebook and social media updates I afforded myself time to do the very things that inspired me.
In doing so I turned what were once dreams in to reality, learn’t a lot about myself, and developed a passion for travel and adventure photography, as well as writing. I’m yet to have a major epiphany or indeed find my life’s calling, but for now at least I’m happy finding a balance between extended trips away whilst earning enough money to make the next plan possible.
My trips generally focus on human power by bike or on foot, played out slowly enough to see the contours of the landscape unfold around me, to meet new people and to linger where I wish.
