About Me

A friendly English guy who now lives life in Sydney, Australia. I enjoy yoga, sports and many different activities. Amongst my friends I am known for giving most things a try and rarely shy away from situations. I feel like I am a good person and generally keep my friends very close.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I free-climbed (Trad) Longs Peaks (one of 14 14,000ft mountains in USA) with a friend. The route we took was called "The casual", which was nowhere near the hardest route up the 1000ft climb. It took us over 9 hours to get to the summit, which is where reality set in and we didnt have safe way back down (the sun was setting!).

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach acroyoga (I've spent years learning and very happy to share). I also teach build up and eventually how to hold handstands (I can hold one for more than 2 minutes now).

I'm currently learning how to hold one armed handstands and any new acro moves.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A curiosity for life.
