Regarding my adventure journey, some people say I’ve been lucky. But I say it’s about making my own luck in pursuit of adventure. Pursuing a professional career in engineering was a choice, but I always knew it was secondary to my passion to be outside exploring and learning new skills. I’d joke about returning to work on a Monday morning for a rest after the weekend’s activities. From an early age, I’d divert much-needed funds and time into adventures around caving, kayaking, cycling, mountaineering, skiing, flying, and travelling. As life moved on the adventures continued and widened into various corners of the world, with so many places and adventures still remaining.
