Drink – Beers

TV – game of thrones, walking dead.

Books – Comics/graphic novels. Nerdy stuff Music – Anything and everything except for country.

Holiday – Anywhere with mountains to see, snowboard down or rock climb up.


Short Bio – Local lad, always lived in Rocky. I’ve always been an active person by playing sports and enjoying nature. Been at the caves since I was 19, where I first developed my passion for rope based activities. After three years and achieving a cert IV in outdoor rec, I moved on for 2 years and developed my rope skills further in an industrial environment, as a level II Rope Access Technician, while always coming back to the caves on the odd weekend to help the old team out. But with the birth of my baby girl at the end of 2017 and not wishing to miss out on any of her adventures by going out of town to power stations for work, I’m now back as the full time Outdoor Rec Supervisor and excited to be back taking everyone through this special part of QLD


Now …. Tell us something that might surprise us about you! 

Taking on the movember challenge this year in order to raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer research, along with mental health and suicide prevention programs for men all over the world. I figured with exposure to people from all over the world who come to visit our caves, It would be an ideal chance to be heard. With people from America to Germany, Switzerland to London, and people all over Australia, everyone has been insanely supportive. A massive thank you to our guests who have been so generous on their holidays.
