Originally from South Australia, I have more recently made the stunning, Vancouver Island, home. My South Australian roots led me to a love for all things ocean, and I was lucky enough to attend a high school that allowed me to gain a few local Tertiary education certifications in Kayak/hiking guide/instruction. Now, after many years as a freelance outdoor education instructor, I am focusing my time on sea Kayak guiding. I have lived in many different places and worked/studied in a large array of fields, that I feel comfortable as a leader and team member of any style, and hope to always bring a warm, confident, and joyful personality to the team. As a Canadian resident, I am available for freelance/part-time/contract work anywhere on the Island, Mainland BC or the USA, (dual-citizen).
