I feel really fortunate to be able to say that I grew up in the Bay of Plenty, which was once small town on New Zealand's North Island East coast (now, one of the fastest growing in the country).

Having quick and easy access to all of its beaches was a blessing growing up as well as having the resources at the Omanu Papamoa lifeguarding club, this meant water sports were always amongst my key activities. Thinking back, whether it was for bmx, road or mountain, I was almost always on a bike, the beauty of it all is that in NZ, everything is relatively close and accessible, I could bike 20 minutes and be in a seal colony (in Wellington), or five minutes in the surf.

I sold everything (or gave it away), took my bike and went cycle-touring through South East Asia for four months. Afterwards, still not content, I invested in a round the world trip ticket which by accident led me to Argentina, to a Vipassana 10 day silent meditation retreat, to a job with an international theatre company, to my gorgeous wife and so ten days turned very quickly to ten years! I work as an audio visual actor and for the last 5 years I have been guiding visitors with Urban and Biking Buenos Aires, to satisfy and maintain my needs for the outdoors and meeting others who have a zest for a quest.

As far back as I can remember, I was always wandering, exploring, getting lost and finding my way back again. For a child growing up in rural Ohio, in a place where the only neighbors were cornstalks, this was one of the few readily available outdoor activities that didn't require any additional equipment or participants, nothing more than a bit of curiosity. I would often make my own way through the woods in search of anything that caught my eye.

That same instinct has, over time, carried me farther and farther away from the cornfields I navigated even before I could see where I was headed, and it still drives me to keep following roads to see where they lead and what I might discover along the way.
