What you'll do

I have a saying which is "prepared not paranoid". It means to live life with the fullest of intent but to do so with the mindset, skills and knowledge to handle whatever situations may present themselves and to be able to protect those you love the most. From urban threats, accidents in the wilderness to natural disasters, emergency and survival situations do happen. A large part of my philosophy is to have an understanding and the skillsets needed to safely navigate the dangers this ever-changing world presents. My goal is to draw from my background and knowledge to provide some of the worlds best bushcraft, urban and wilderness survival training in a way that is highly transferable and can be applied in the real world. From basic family preparedness training through to advanced survival and bushcraft I strive to deliver one of a kind training that is tangible, realistic and highly effective. These courses are absolutely ideal for anyone wanting to learn some great new skills from families, fathers and sons, beginner adventurers through to those wanting advanced skill levels.
