I have significant experience in leadership and young adult education and am passionate in developing and facilitating students, and staff, to gain valuable life experiences to develop holistically as individuals, through a methodology of Outdoor Education.

I have a positive attitude, clear communication skills and am able to work equally well on my own or in a team environment.

I am a proven Project Manager and Broadcast/Business specialist, currently re-training and working toward my Diploma in Outdoor Recreation in Brisbane, QLD. I have 30 years’ experience in the outdoors including hiking, camping, rock climbing, kayaking, abseiling, snowboarding and more. Whilst I’m getting my qualifications organised I’m keen to find new roles in the outdoor industry that can utilise my existing project management and business skill set. I have a host of transferable skills, can manage your business, build new installations, negotiate contracts and more besides. I will have my Cert III qualification by Sept 2016 and my Cert IV in 2017.
