I've studied a BSc and BTeach. As a school teacher and business owner I have some flexibility to travel on holidays. I've completed my PADI Divemaster qualification and like scuba diving trips. I recently dived in Koh Tao, Thailand and love the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland.

I enjoy travel whether it is in Australia or overseas. I also like learning languages! I love meeting people around the world that rollerskate or rollerblade (used to or want to) so if that is you, please join the Travbuddy "Rollerblading Group" linked on the left. It does not matter what your level of ability is.

If you want to know more than that - go check out the websites listed or send me an email or find me on facebook at

If you've ever wanted to learn or just improve your skating please contact me wherever you are. I'm always keen to teach because it helps me to financially fund my travel trips! Please check out the websites that I have built for more information.

In 2012 I drove across the top of Australia checking out Uluru, Kings Canyon, etc and then onto Cairns. I spent several months in Western Australia and really enjoyed teaching both skating and (more traditional) teaching assignments at high schools along the way. I saw much of the coast from Esperance around to Broome and the Kimberley region is incredible. After spending some time in Cairns (1 year) and then Noosa (6 months) in early 2014 I moved to Brisbane, QLD then finally back to Sydney in mid 2015 completing the epic drive around Australia!

Check out my August 2011 Thailand photos as well as Cage Shark Diving review from SA's Port Lincoln (The experience was the day before an Abalone diver was taken by two Great White Sharks not far away). Happy travels.
