About Me




Happy to be putting down roots in Switzerland after years of diverse adventures around the world :-)

Born and raised in Brisbane, then a new-Swede during my fun years in Stockholm, and finally travelled around way too many other places before discovering this Swiss paradise. Now instead of traveling between countries by aeroplane I want to travel between mountains and towns by bicycle.

Here are photos of my recent adventures:


I guess you're allowed to sound cheesy in this bit. My philosophy is that you get out of life about as much as you put into it, so you gotta put in as much as you can. Oh and be happy because that's your job.


My life is a bit funny. I spend most of my time running like hell to avoid being squashed under all of the wheels I've set turning. Then I relax by setting more wheels turning.

The wheels turning now are making Grindelwald my home, gradually learning to speak schwiizertüütch, and dreaming of getting a puppy. I completed my first half-ironman in 2012 and valiantly attempted my first full ironman too. Hoping to improve next season :)
