About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Visit as many countries in Europe as possible (while still holding down a full-time job)

ABOUT ME

A dual Australian / American citizen, I still call Australia home but but have traveled much of the world. Travelling and meeting new people is one of my great passions in life and every trip overseas whether to China, Thailand, South Africa, Canada or Italy, my travels are shaped by the friendships I make along the way.

I was born in Cairns, North Queensland, Australia (where everyone scuba-dives the Great Barrier Reef) but spent the majority of my childhood and education in Townsville before moving to Brisbane for two years and finally living in Sydney for over three years. I then settled in Boston for two years, allowing me to explore much of the U.S.A., before finally relocating to Dublin, Ireland, and now finally London where I now reside.

PHILOSOPHY

Live life to the full, enjoy as much as possible, try everything that life has to offer.
