Director Outdoor Adventure Australia
Kris is an avid outdoor enthusiast. As an only child growing up in the bush and then in a small surfing town, it was only natural that an adventurous outdoors lifestyle was par for the course. Most days while growing up were filled with some kind of walk or ride through the bush surrounded by kangaroos, snakes and spiders.
His passion for flora and fauna was only rivaled by his passion for community health and welfare. This lead to University study in science, public health and psychology, resulting in a degree in Science with a major in Public Health.
Kris has had many vocations with some of the most notable being that of ;
- Police Constable in the Queensland Police Service
- Project Manager for the Queensland Dept of Employment and Training
- Quality and Compliance Manager for a Registered Training Organisation - Driver Skills International (training in Defensive and Four Wheel Driving)
- Workplace Health and Safety Officer for numerous organisations
Obviously hobbies and interests are vast but hiking, abseiling, snorkeling, mountain bike riding, camping, kayaking, skateboarding and fishing are probably the most common.
Kris also holds black belts in a number of martial arts and spent a number of years as a Queensland Scout and Venturer leader.
