Nick is inspired by history, the environment, learning and the opportunity to walk a road less travelled.
The list of onward challenges for Nick is long, but it is vital that these goals have meaning and purpose as the effort required to action these projects is all-encompassing. The Olympic road has scheduled downtime away from the demands of consistent training and competition. During these windows Nick will be found regathering his composure in remote parts of the world on truly engaging assignments.
The next adventure project in Nick's schedule is a journey to Antarctica in February 2020. He will be accompanying a small group of scientists to learn more about safeguarding the natural environment of this pristine region. The timing of this journey coincides with the 200th Anniversary of 'the heroic era of exploration' and the ultimate discovery of the frozen continent.
Two hundred years ago Antarctica was sighted for the first time. As with many pages in history and discovery, there remains a question over ‘who saw it first’? Antarctica is no different with a battle between an Irish claim and that from Russian log books. These first recorded sightings sit a mere two days apart.
Whilst the explorers of the 19th century were seeking new frontiers, Nick's exploration joins many in seeking to understand the extent of change that Antarctica is victim to due to climate change.
Nick's role in this expedition is to create and distribute content documenting the journey, the history and the future of this region. Nick will be working with the most modern means of communication equipment in order to bridge the divide between lounge rooms, classrooms, boardrooms and special events by delivering video and image links from the most remote and hostile continent on planet earth.
