Explorer and anthropologist. Writer and teacher. Musician and artist. Philosopher and travel guide.These are all professions that Jazza has very little skills and attributes in, but that doesn’t stop him from trying.

Born in Sydney, Australia, Jazza was bitten hard by the travel bug early on in his life and at the age of 20 left his home to be a ski bum in Canada. 8 years later, he still wants to be a ski bum, but has instead substituted that life for one of discovering new, exciting places all over the world.

With an all-encompassing passion for snow, mountain and water sports, and a love of travel and adventure, he endeavours to bring his enthusiasm for life to the far corners of the globe and inspire others to do the same.

Jazza is the chief author of the stories and writings found on NOMADasaurus. His writing skills peaked at the ripe old age of 12, when he was awarded the coveted “Letter of the Month” in an Australian surfing magazine, and as a result won a custom made surfboard. He has continued to write to this day, still hoping that someone will give him another surfboard for his ramblings. So far this has been unsuccessful.

Note: In 2014 Jazza was announced as the winner of the World Nomads Travel Writing Scholarship. Even though he was awarded with a writing course from a Lonely Planet author, an all-expenses-paid trip to Europe and opportunities to become a freelance travel writer with some of the biggest names in the industry, he was not given a surfboard.
