This website was born...

…through my love of riding and annoying everyone by constantly stopping to shoot photos.


Up until the end of 2020, I was a Managing Editor for three Australian motorcycle print titles over 15 years, launching ‘Australian Adventure Bike’ magazine, which was something I absolutely loved to produce.


I started ADV LIFE because I appreciate the versatility that digital brings and I had the itch to tell two-wheel stories again. 


I hope you enjoy what we’ve built here. I hope it inspires and encourages you to ride whatever you have, wherever you can, and to remember how lucky we are to get to ride this magnificent country. 

We will expand the site with more sections coming soon from video to something dear to my heart…The Schnitty Report. I’ll need your help with that one so stay tuned.
