My life began in the coastal village of Lennox Head in Northern N.S.W. and it was here that my connection with the ocean was born. At the ripe age of 20 I felt the need to experience something different and moved to Melbourne with my best friend for 4 !/2 years of fun and city life. I then packed up my belongings, quit my numerous hospitality jobs and said goodbye.
I left Melbourne with an advanced diploma of photography and a universal wonder lust. The next 5 years my backpack became my home as I explored various countries around the world. I also worked on yachts which allowed me to explore, gain skills and fund my travels.
Towards the end of this time I decided to place all the amazing memories and adventures in the corner of my heart and move back to Australia to do what I thought I ‘should’ be doing at my age.
Being home has been really special, but in this time I have also realised there is still so much more I want to see and do.
Home has given me the ‘rest’ I needed to listen closely to my heart and my heart points to everything that is about to be undertaken this year.
My love for the ocean has taken a new turn this past year, with surfing and free-diving my favourite activities at the moment. For ever I have wanted to sail across the pacific, maybe I still will but I can happily replace that dream with this dream of Tonga. I’m very excited to get to understand a new country and culture and be apart of this project. Meeting new interesting people is something I value and enjoy, not to mention the amazing depth of the underworld waiting to be explored.
I’m excited! ~ A few of my other interests (some past, some present, some future) are…
*Marine Conservation *Travel *Camping *Health and Lifestyle *Yoga *Surfing *Sailing *Scuba/free-diving *Photography and the Arts *Karate *Capoeira *African Dance
