About Me

I am a 29 year old Aussie paramedic with a keen sense of adventure. As the list grows longer, I have been lucky enough to explore corners of Japan, Canada, Cuba, the US, Indonesia, New Zealand, Nepal, the UK and parts of Europe. 

All of my spare time is spent in the wilds (or dreaming about it); hiking, camping, wild swimming, canyoning, climbing, skiing or cycling.

I grew up in Sydney, Australia. In 2013, I graduated a Bachelor of Medical Science from the University of Sydney and a month later, moved to Canada to work and ski. 

In 2014, I returned home and worked as a hiking guide in the Blue Mountains for several years. 

 

In 2015, I spent six months road tripping through western USA in a rusty van named Big Rhonda. Making my way from Alaska to Colorado, hiking through wild national parks and skiing big mountains. I returned home in 2016 and started a Bachelor of Paramedic Practice the very next day at the University of Tasmania. 

After graduating, I moved to Terrigal, NSW to start my career as a paramedic and worked there for 18 months. At the beginning of 2020, I took a paramedic job with London Ambulance Service and moved to the UK. 

 

After a tough few years of grieving the loss of my mum to breast cancer and working for the NHS throughout the COVID-19 pandemic in London, it’s time to take a break and go have some fun!

 

At this point, I have no idea where I will end up, but I'm excited for new experiences, seeking out wild and beautiful places and finding authentic social connections with people around the world.

 

I will be cycling through the world with my mum’s ashes fixed to my handlebars, fulfilling her dream to travel the world and reminding myself to live this one life we have to the absolute fullest.
