Hi, my name is Chris and I'm from New Zealand! Having lived in New Zealand my whole life, I've been rather fortunate that nature has never been too far away - due to this, I've had a lot of outdoor experiences! I've had the pleasure of being both a team leader and instructor on 10+ school camps (through my old college) and during school I was also a part-time swimming instructor teaching kids between the ages of 4-13 how to swim! Over the last few years I've worked my way up the corporate ladder and have since left to pursue a more fulfilling career within the outdoors!
