Who am I?

I am a wayfarer whose life is packed with disasters, travel, mountains, family, work, writing and books. I have just finished working in the Tsunami and earthquale operation in Indonesia after four years and have just arrived in Sri Lanka to assist with the internally displaced in the north of the country.

I am a New Zealander and have published three books which are related to mountains/poetry. They are Mountains of Our Mind - Afghanistan, Ebenezer Teichelmann (a great NZ mountaineer) and The Great New Zealand Race- Coast to Coast.

I have climbed and trekked extensively in New Zealand, Europe, Peru, Antarctica, Borneo, East Africa,Nepal, India, Central Asia and have also been on expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic. using sledge dogs to transport our equipment.
