About


I am an explorer athlete and one of my deepest passions is to share to the world all that i've explored. I trekked 12,000 km northward across eight African countries for two years, entirely by foot and kayak. I started in late 2015 and finished in February, taking an eastern route from Cape Town, South Africa to Cairo, Egypt. Most recently i cycled across the North American continent from BC in the west Newfoundland on the eadt. Along my journey I have made meaningful impacts through media, Tedx Talks and the everyday Africans I've met along the way.




A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Born a Turks and Caicos Islander I spent my childhood in a small village near Stuttgart, Germany, before moving to Toronto, Canada at age 16. It was never enough to be the norm. Prior to embarking on Crossing Africa, I was one of Toronto's top fitness experts and a former professional track and field athlete representing Turks and Caicos.

WHAT AM I UP TO?
I'm currently working on my book along with my co-author, conducting speaking engagements, and preparing for my next expeditions (Project EVA and mini adventures in Canada). This requires a lot of time working with logistics and scheduling which leaves me with no time to work on anything but this.

FUTURE PROJECTS:
  • Project EVA (December, 2018) 
  • Hike Entire Bruce Trail (August, 2018)
  • Project ROOTS (February, 2020)
  • Kayak Zambeizi River (2022)
