Over the last 10 years I feel I have developed unparalleled knowledge an enthusiasm for the subjects I talk about and interpret during guided excursions, both in densely populated areas and remote regions of the world. With a bit of notice, I can confidently lecture on a wide variety of historical or geo-political subjects, at private or corporate events including cruise ships, expedition yachts and overseas venues.
My field of expertise covers a number of topics in relation to imperial expansion, naval history, and world exploration. I love stories about land, sea, sub-sea, air and space exploration, and I aim to deliver these presentations as clearly and objectively as possible to inform, inspire and educate listeners. From school children to savvy travellers, I enjoy weaving a tale of daring do, helping individuals discover and make conections with the past. I am a lecturer, researcher and a storyteller. I give history a voice.
