Award winning filmmaker, average gardener, hopeless at cooking eggs. Beau is mostly unfashionable.

On the recent 350k crossing of Bass Strait in a sea kayak (from mainland Australia to Tasmania) he was voted 3rd worst dressed in a party of 3.

Home truths: Bass Strait in a salad bowl

Days after an expedition are odd. I eat a ridiculous amount of fresh food. Veggies and Salad consume me. I become regular again. Routine is picked up as if the handle was turned my way, waiting. Here I sit, home on the range (my pocket sized farm), with drizzle making…
