The Pacific & Oceania

beyond the beaten path

Oceania is a vast, arbitrarily defined expanse of the world where the Pacific Ocean – rather than land borders – connects the nations. It is home to glistening white beaches, coconut palms swaying in the breeze, beautiful coral reefs,and rugged volcanic islands rising out of the blue ocean. Its diverse nations have both some of the world's most cosmopolitan and internationalised cities such as Melbourne, and some of its most remote and culturally isolated villages.

I was raised camping and exploring the South west and US national parks. From this and spending 10 years as a cub and Boy Scout,I have developed a major appreciation for the natural world. For the past 12 years I have organized a rock climbing trip to the magical desert of Joshua Tree NP for 15-150 friends and friends of friends. From this spawned my love of guiding people through nature and up cliffs. I would love to join your team to support facilitating people connecting with nature and adventure. Thank so much!

I’ve been traveling to connect further with myself and nature for the past 2-3 years as a film maker and photographer.It has opened doors for me and expanded my horizons beyond measures. Travel has been a source of inspiration of ephemeral beauty I can capture and share with others. I have never done a group trip but have always desired to drive so. This sounds like an interesting opportunity to make it happen and share some experiences with my audience.
