Location scouting / Adventure logistics
Remote location scouting & Land Rover Defender hire for film shoots / adventure logistics for remote areas.
From 2006 to 2009 I sailed across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans solo in a 26ft boat. This adventure was the subject of a feature length film called Between Home, made by German/Australian filmmaker Jack Rath. Other voyages & deliveries include a second doublehanded trans-Pacific, totaling 30,000+ nautical miles of sea time.
In 2019/2020 I am completing my circumnavigation of the world by driving overland from Australia back to Europe, via Africa.
