Our Story

We have collectively travelled the world experiencing adventure and know first-hand how difficult it is to find information about adventure experiences in one place and then try to book and share them. This is really confusing and time consuming, which is why the three of us came together with a mutual passion to solve this and create the world’s leading adventure travel network.

Borne out of a shared desire to consolidate, grow and enhance all things adventure travel, we worked across two countries to make this a reality. We are now more than business partners, we are friends with complimentary skill sets who adventure together and live the exploreGO ethos of ‘Travel Global, Support Local’.

Co-Founder

Growing up with parents who travelled extensively across the globe, my first adventure was a family holiday to Indonesia. Since then I’ve spent the past 20 years adventuring and working in some of the most breath-taking destinations around the world. For me, life is about exploration, discovering new cultures and meeting people. As an experienced digital consultant and start-up venture enthusiast with a strong background in business, marketing and creativity, I have led some of the most advanced strategies online. As a keen surfer, hiker, free diver and adventure traveler, I’ve always wanted to build something that I stand for - sharing my true passion of travel and connecting others to the many amazing experiences that we can all enjoy.
