Rotorua New Zealand
It all about the journey for me. Travelling down a remote river being a self sufficient camping cook with company and running amazing rapids each and every day. What more could you want.

Well, that’s hard to say they are all good! But if I had to narrow it down, my breakfast omelettes are hard to beat for those big days on the water!

Being a Dad
Well I didn’t know what my best story is. Multi day expedition, for me is not just about the great whitewater on a trip but also the culture and nature we are surrounded by. Being a ‘kiwi’ we don’t have a great diversity of wild life so some of my biggest highlights…..waking up on a beautiful beach on the Sun Kosi in Nepal and finding Tiger footprints in the sand and share in everyone’s nervous excitement over a cooked breakfast. Imagine my first encounter with a snake (we don’t have snakes in New Zealand) was when a 4 metres python swam straight under my raft in Australia !!! Sharing my office with baboon’s, crocodile, elephants and hippo in Zambia is just mind blowing and truly a privilege.
Tamur river, Nepal.
So many places…..Futaleufu Chile, Peru, Alaska, Madagascar…..the list goes on.
