I have a huge love for the outdoors and adventure and try to make time to get outside and explore as much as possible. I am especially passionate about water sports, and tramping. I completed the Edmund Hillary Outdoor Pursuits Centre course in 2008 and also a Classic Course at Outward Bound in August 2016, which I consider to be one of my best adventures yet as it pushed me physically. In my spare time I enjoy exercising and keeping fit. I love weight training at the gym as well as group classes,team sports, and running. I also spend lots of time with friends and family, helping out on the farm, and making time for painting and drawing.
