I’m 40 something, a Graphic Designer and web developer from Queensland, Australia, having spent the last 20+ years in the associated printing industry, frustrated with the generic life I had. I had the house, the management job, but there were things missing in my life, an excitment.
Given I have hit the mid life point, with no strong commitments to keep me in one place, and after a messy breakup (yes we all know how they can get) I decided it was a great opportunity knocking at my door to get back into travelling and reconnect with the parts of myself I had lost over the years.
I hadn’t travelled much since I was in my early 20’s, so things have changed considerably with the evolution of the internet making everything from communication, accommodation and even the ability to fund your global exploration easier.
As we speak I have travelled to more than 13 countries, ridden a motorcycle across 4 of them and I am finally starting to find out what it’s like to really LIVE. Midlifemate is an opportunity for me to share my experiences, good and bad.
Aside from this blog and Youtube channel, I also conceptualised, developed, and monetised Australia’s largest online Jeep community ausjeepoffroad.com as well as 20secondgorilla.com, a viral Youtube video sharing site.
