Behind The Mic


Traveller. Cyclist. Expat. Teacher.

With 15 years experience living abroad in six different countries, I’ve travelled to over 40+ countries and met countless travellers, cyclists, and other expats. As a passionate cyclist I’ve had opportunities to bike tour in some truly amazing places, such as Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, and Canada.

I’m passionate about sharing bike touring stories and helping others learn tips, tricks, and techniques to improve their touring experience.

Together, we’ll hear stories from bike tourers, bikepackers, athletes, and ultra-distance racers. I look forward to you joining me on this journey of learning.
