True Coaster with a mean beard

As a born and bred West Coaster, the bush is in my blood! I love showing off my beautiful Kāinga Tupu (homeland) and all it has to offer. I’m always exploring new places with my best mate Skadi, the white shepherd.

My love for exploring the great outdoors is what drove me to leave my hectic day job and create a life that allowed me to get outside more. I’m a big fan of essential living, enjoying the simple things and staying away from material goods; you can get the benefits from all that out in the bush. If you hike with me, we’ll visit some spots literally off the beaten track. The beaches on my Instagram are a prime example. I look forward to showing you the Coast!
