The ‘mid life re-evaluation’. And getting real.

READ THE FULL TRAVEL PLAY LIVE ARTICLE HERE In recent years, after decades of being a bit of an ‘inside guy’, I’ve well and truly fallen in love with Mother Nature and the outdoors. And it’s fundamentally changed many aspects of my life. In fact, it’s difficult to imagine an area of my life it [...]

The Rainbow Round of Sport

Protests and demonstrations are always tricky things. How much of it do we do to actually do good, versus just feeling good? A lame, token gesture that looks great, but achieves nothing.

Taking photos & making memories.

I know there's one school of thought that says, when you're out there living life you should put your damn camera away and just take it all in. And fair enough too.

It’s time to make Awesome possible.

One question I get asked almost more than any other, is what the heck is a ‘Swashbuckler’? Well, the traditional definition says it’s “a swaggering swordsman, solider, or adventurer; daredevil.” As you can imagine, I'm less about swords, and more about adventure here. So let’s go with that. And I'm not just talking about [...]
