About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To plunder new lands.

ABOUT ME

Who am I?

-I’m artistic, intellectual and enjoy the finer things in life, I like to take photos, plant trees, sing in the shower and cook.

-if that last sentence made you queasy, don’t worry, I also like to be extremely cheeky, tear the labels of mattresses, tease and make fun of people, drive really fast across Spain in my car with the windows down, sun shining and the music blaring. I am a proud organ donor, my kidney bought me my Playstation.

-I’m the raconteur, the guy that’s travelled the world, and has a story for every situation. I’m the bad guy in the movie that everyone has a soft spot for, Russell Crowe in 3:10 to Yuma, a mix between Nelson, Homer, professor Frink. and the Criminal Snake. (if you don’t enjoy the Simpsons, please stop reading now)

-I travel a lot for my work, and with my friends any time I get the chance. For my last trip, I took 10 friends to a spot in Spain that seems like no one knows about, we spent a week drinking wine, eating tapas and laying by the beach. Be nice, and ill tell you where it is.

- I work in Fashion, In the past I've worked as a Croupier, a landscaper, a boatswain, and as a snowboard and mountain guide.

-All my friends are confident and comfortable in their own skin, so you will need to field the same qualities. Most of them are Artistic, so an interest in the arts will be admired.

-I have a Turtle named George Clooney, a Dog named Rooster and an impossible to quench thirst for Mango Rubicon.

What Else…

I’m 30 years old, I’m proudly Australian, and I hate the walkabout and all other Australian Activities in London.

I’m also living in Bear Grylls shadow. I love the wilderness and I’m an avid Snowboarder and Surfer. I miss my very small hometown, and all the people in it, but for my heartbreak, I get to see amazing countries, like Russia, Mexico, Lichtenstein, and Denmark. I also get to try things like pickled octopus, rice wine, and buffalo meat. I love being in restaurants where the menu has no English… I just point to something and hope for the best.

I’ve lived in America, Austria, Germany, Portugal, Canada and of course Australia and the UK.

What would you find in my house:

Lots of records (all Blues, jazz, rock and soul), an open bottle of red wine, Rosemary and sage, fresh Garlic, photos of my cousins and nephews, Bukowski novels, posters of Steve McQueen and Paul Newman, photography equipment, maps of my next holiday destination and a script from my last compere job.

What wouldn’t you find in my house:

Black eyed pea’s CDs, Broccoli, microwave meals, an umbrella, an open letter to the X factor, telling them I love their show, Hair Straighteners.

PHILOSOPHY

Buy the ticket, take the ride.
