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. When 2 more expedition members turned up he was the worst of 5. Being offbeat and NQR speaks volumes about how Beau sees the world, believing wholeheartedly that we are all weird.

Past experiences include paddling several thousand kilometers of Africa by Kayak, running 700km across the Australian Alps (Trials of Miles), and recently finding challenge and beauty in the everyday lands between home and work during Man vs Commute.

Over two full days and a night- spent in a bush under the glow of a petrol station, I walked 100km to work, living off the side of the road, having left home with nothing but the clothes on my back. I found 2 iphones, an ipad (Siri was yapping…
