I am an active member of Alexandra Headland Surf Club and a Masters Surfboat rower.
I have had two Great Uncles that served in PNG during WW2.
I first trekked Kokoda in 2009 and became inspired by the story of Kokoda.

In 2007, I was drawn to Kokoda and found the experience so uplifting; it was to change my life forever. I feel extremely privileged to be in a position where I can not only add value to peoples lives but often share a life changing experience, this is very humbling to me.

With over thirty years teaching experience, I am able to combine classroom and outdoor recreation experience and my detailed knowledge of the Kokoda campaign to lead safe, informative, memorable and moving treks.

I served as an Infantryman in the Australian Regular Army for over 35 years including operational service in South Vietnam and Somalia.
Since my discharge in late 2004 I have worked in the Fitness Industry as a Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor.

The attack on the trek in Morobe province last week was a terrible event – infinitely more terrible, of course, for the two Papua New Guinean guides who were killed, and for their families, than for the Australian trekkers, who escaped with lacerations and bruises.

Services to Papua New Guinea’s Kokoda, at the head of the famous Kokoda Track, are to get a boost.
The station at the north end of the track will be converted into a township for the people of Sohe District.

It changed my world gave me the courage to stand alone where I didn’t want to before – the knowledge that as long as one foot moves in front of the other everything will be ok – reverence for the people who made that track legendary and so much more its hard to find the words to describe it – the track porters people trackers I learnt something from all of them.

I would just like to say a MASSIVE thank you on behalf of the 24th Sept – 2nd Oct trekkers. I had an amazing time. I surprised myself every day on the track and I can honestly say that my life has changed for the better. The porters your company organised were the most amazing men and I admire every one of them. They are amazing cooks too!
