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. Outdoor Education, and offbeat types of adventure, can exemplify the curious nature of people, natures, and is often overlooked for
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.

What I write on my entry card when coming home

I recently answered some questions to a phoney online blogger. The questions were slippery, and I stupidly wasted too much time. But I suppose, like any good load of bollocks, they got me thinking. At the heart of this was the leading question; Beau, why are you an adventurer? First…
Making things

A product of the 70’s

Like most Aussies I’m a fringe dweller. I live an hour from the coast. On a clear day from the top of my paddock I can see Western Port. But I’m no salty. My surfer mates, station-wagon dudes with skunking wetsuits in the backseat, possess an acute relationship with the…
