You'd be right in thinking I started wild camping and I never looked back.

In 2012, I stumbled across a website called Explorers Connect. My head was full of big dreams, and becoming an expedition kayaker was right at the forefront. I now run my own expedition company, bringing together adventure-loving people. Happy birthday, Explorers Connect. You have influenced my journey more that you can imagine!
