Date of Birth 03 March 1991

Country Australia

Primary Sport Whitewater Kayaking

Other Sports Hiking, surfing, gymnastics

Proudest Moment Scouting and paddling nevis bluff. I was no there with anyone who new the lines and so it was a personal accomplishment to scout the lines and paddle this massive rapid successfully

Dreams and aspirations To paddle in Chile, to undertake some first descents in the fiordlands of NZ, to explore paddling options in south east Asia. But less specifically to create a lifestyle where I can adventure and paddle everyday in amazing locations.

Career highlights My most recent trip to the pacific north west and british columbia was really a kayaking highlight for me. This pushed my personal kayaking into new areas, presented new challenges, and allowed me to meet many other passionate people.

A bit about yourself Studied bachelor of engineering at University of Newcastle and am currently undertaking a PHD in robotic engineering. While keeping me busy a lot of the time this provides me with enough freedom to pursue my true passion of whitewater kayaking. Although mostly a pastime and way of life for me, I have also gained my whitewater instructors cert in Australia and very much enjoy sharing the sport with others. More recently I have become interested in photography and filming, and am always excited to film and photo the sport.
