Explorer | Teacher | Speaker
The world teaches us more than books is my guiding principle.
I have been going on adventurous journeys great and small for over a decade.
"The world teaches"
In 2015 I spent my summer holidays traveling across the Altiplano with Temujin Doran to make ALTIPLANO. Our journey began at 6088m on the top of Huayna Potosi, we hitched, trekked & paddled our way along the water-course to the Salt Flats at Uyuni. The purpose of our journey was to explore a fresh perspective on Climate Change to discover a way harnessing Adventure to engage with an environmental issue. Watch the teaser here.
Revolution Cycle 2008-10
Over 18months I cycled 31,000km with Simon Evans through the some of the highest, driest, remotest, wettest, poorest and hottest places on earth. Enduring; electrical storms at 4,000m in Bolivia, a knife attack in Iran, -15 degree blizzards in Turkey, and 45 degree desert crossings in Western China. In doing I so became one of the first two Irish Irishmen to circumnavigate the globe by bike. Read the blog here and watch our journey from Dublin to Colombia & Shanghai to Dublin.
Walking Rwanda 2011
Via Egnatia 2013
1,000km hitching, hiking & biking across the Balkan Peninsula following the Via Egnatia an old roman road from Istanbul to the Albanian coast. An impromptu low budget adventure that allowed me to get a deeper understanding of ancient infrastructure and consider how it connects a fractious region today.
Tramping Transylvania 2012
I spent 3 weeks tramping through Transylvania; camping, trekking, & hitching at sub zero temperatures. The purpose of the journey was to find solitude in the Carpathian mountains. Instead, in a frozen landscape on the margins of Europe, I found warm & resilient people, stark inequality, and political tension.
The Prince's Highway 2003
I was working as a chef in Melbourne. One night I bought a fully loaded turing bike from a guy I met in a bar. Two weeks later I was cycling the 900km to Sydney along the Prince's Highway.
I have over a decade's experience in the Adventure space and have worked with the following brands, publications, NGOs, broadcasters & institutions on campaigns and adventure related projects. Let's work together!
