Expedition Crew & Master Reef Guide

I am 6th generation Australia and was born on the Gold coast in 1985. I am very fortunate to have lived a beautiful happy life and come from the best supportive loving family. I have a big passion for the ocean and recently became a Master Reef guide. I have worked in a lot of different locations around the fantastic Country including the Whitsundays, Fraser Island, Ningaloo Reef, Kimberley’s, Abrolhos Islands, Thredbo ski season Gold Coast and Morten Island as a marine and land tour guide or coxswain skipper. I have a background of hospitality before all this and was training for the Olympics in swimming while in school but unfortunately broke my knee right before the trials, I am part fish haha always happy near the water. I am very excited my new adventures working for Coral Expeditions and getting to spend time with all of you!
