    7 REASONS TO TRAVEL WITH STRANGERS
    Seven Reasons to Travel with Strangers Keen to know what travelling on Contiki is really like? Have you been thinking about booking a group tour like Topdeck or G-Adventures or Busabout?

    The Importance of Space As an Artist
    I'm back in the lab... Since starting my diploma of sound production I've always had a space. A lab. A room filled with my possessions. Trinkets, a world map, camera gear, quotes, plants, wooden textures, instruments, art, books about art, documentaries on artists. Over the years it's changed  As creators we are a sum of those parts. All of the ideas we pick up along the way find themselves into that space. Building your own world, creating your own identity, all starts in a space.  I think

    HOW DO YOU START A VLOG?!
    I WANT A MILLION SUBSCRIBERS AND I WANT THEM NOW DADDY! Have you always thought about vlogging or starting a youtube channel and then just somehow got bogged down in the process? I feel ya! Welcome to my millennial adventure, here's how I started my vlog and grew over 20 thousand subscribers to my youtube channel...  Let's be honest, I went on a reality television show that obviously helped with the latter (growing subscribers) but certainly not in the way you might blatantly assume.

    2018 - MY MISSION STATEMENT
    I've noticed a lot of Christmas decorations popping up. That's a sign. The year is almost over...  This blog began in 2015. Back then my goal was to inspire others to travel the world. I started my youtube channel around the same time with the mission statement: to inspire millennial Australians to see the world. In doing so, over the last few years, my mission has changed. You see the point of creating this blog in conjunction with my social channels was not only to string a few sentences

    TIPS TO TACKLING WRITERS BLOCK
    It's all in your head :)  I recently had a friend on facebook ask for help. A singer/songwriter claiming to have writer's block. Loads of creatives have drifted around this topic, some would have dealt with it and others might still be working it out. So here are my thoughts on how to tackle the situation... Five years ago I found a bunch of enjoyment out of songwriting. I would create a beat on Ableton, play it on repeat and write a rap to it. Each track was a complete experiment both

    THRILL SEEKERS ADVICE FOR CANADA
    Have you ever seen snow?... A question I asked myself whilst onboard my flight from Sydney to Vancouver. Growing up in Far North Queensland (Australia) the weather conditions were either hot, or wet. We barely experienced two seasons let alone four. Besides sneaking in a couple of days snowboarding at Thredbo late last year, the question was still well & truly on my mind. The short answer was no. I hadn't experienced snow, nothing like Japan or Switzerland or wait for it... CANADA!   I think

    THINKING ABOUT ADELAIDE?
    This morning I read an alarming statistic.... (not true, it just seems like an interesting sentence to start this blog post, read on...) So 2017, I woke up in an empty hotel room. My friend Shammi was suppose to be rooming with me but he obviously had a far bigger & more exciting night than I did and managed to find himself in the loving company of someone else, with longer hair than mine. His new years was lit... mine, not so lit. It was raining, I drew back the curtains in my hotel room to

    DOCUMENT, DON'T CREATE!
    So it's 2017.  WHAT THE ACTUAL F*CK! If you were a regular subscriber to these blog posts I hope you're still alive because the last time anything was posted here was waaaaaay back in March 2016. I'm not even going to apologise for the lack of consistency. Writing takes time yo! Especially for me. You see if you know me by any stretch you'll understand that I'm much more of a visual storyteller so sitting down to type out a couple of paragraphs can be quite challenging. Anyhoo, I also

    24 HOURS IN JERVIS BAY
    You've either got it or you don't, right? Last weekend my roommate Tom & I thought it'd be an awesome idea to get out of the city (well the Bondi bubble) and head South for the weekend taking only the bare necessities, a couple of sleeping bags, a tent, a fishing rod, a surfboard and an awesome can-do attitude that most politicians would find fault in. Why? Because that's what politicians are good at & that's why Tom & I don't listen to politics. (Tom might, most of the time i'm just on

    DIED & CAME BACK TO LIFE!
    I'm in bed. It's 9am on a Saturday morning, the day before Valentines Day (not like that means anything, I'm just giving you a better reference of time) and... I'm still in bed. Who am I?! I haven't made a video blog in over 4 months! I haven't written a blog post in 3. I haven't taken nearly enough pictures to excite any form of instagram wanderlust let alone excite myself and yet i'm lying here thinking, when will it start again? When will I get my mojo back!!   I think I kind of explained

    DOES HIP-HOP MAKE YOU HAPPY?
    Internet folk, I've been drifting around the real world a little too long lately and have kinda forgot how good it feels to spend hours online surfing websites and hitting that like button on cat videos floating around facebook. How good are cat videos?? Anyway, so here's the deal, I'm almost 27 and at the ripe old age of 26 and 9 months I decided that it'd be an awesome idea to get a full time job. A FULL TIME JOB! WHOA... #commitment #growingup  So as fun as it is to work for yourself and

    BEFORE YOU TRAVEL CAMBODIA
    Having spent the last five days in Cambodia and being the subject to a number of interesting opportunists, I thought it was only fair that I share some of my wisdom to those of you who also wish to make your way over here. This may just allow you to stand tall throughout the situations where I seemed to of fallen short #scambodia :) If you've been keeping up with my vlogs on YouTube you might have seen this first scam play out. Let's call it the 'Child Needs Milk' scam. Picture a baby holding

    This is the ultimate guide to minimalism!

A few key items that enter my suitcase to rapidly reduce my anxiety levels. Interstate travel is great.

    South East Asia PandaBed Adventure
    Just in... NEWS FLASH!! We're going to ASIA!  The day Lisa & I got back from Europe (over a month ago) I decided to jump online and share some photos from our adventures. Turns out whilst I was surfing the internet I stumbled across this video that 'Flying The Nest' had posted to their YouTube channel. The team at PandaBed (an accommodation provider similar to Air B&B) were on the hunt for a couple of interns to help them create video content to showcase their awesome accommodation across south

    R U OK? A Simple Question to Help Save Lives!!
    Sometimes the internet can be a really really dark place. But from that darkness shines some of the brightest of lights! For me, over the last 12 months, each time I've felt anxious, depressed, over-the-moon, happy, or even curious and unsure about something I've reached out to the online world and people have responded. I've found so much light & positivity from strangers, from people I've never even met or ever seen before. People responding to my concerns by posting comments on a video I've

    BEST VLOGGING CAMERA (2015 EDITION)
    What up guys!! So one of the most frequently asked questions in the comment section of my YouTube video blogs is "What camera do you use?" I thought I'd take the opportunity to write a blog post that responds to all of you at once explaining some of the more technical side to how I create my video content. This way, next time someone asks me that very same question I can point them in the right direction by linking them to this post!! Sorted ai :) You see the trick to video blogging or daily

    FAILING FOLLOWS FUNCTION #failtosucceed
    Today is just one of those days. I'm staring at a blanket of grey clouds outside my window, struggling to concentrate on doing anything, procrastinating like a boss & feeling terribly behind the eight ball!! No need to worry or stress, nothing a simple list can't fix. To those of you out there that also have days like this, my remedy for turning nothing into something starts by writing it all down on a crappy little list! List's literally... GET SH*T DONE!  I wanted to update those of you that
