From: Arklow, Ireland
Winner: Outback Adventurer for Australia Tourism, September 2013–February 2014
Job duties: "To document/film/photograph all the events, festivals, adventures, tours; try "days-in-the-life" of other jobs on cattle stations, bars, hostels; and do as much cool stuff in the Northern Territory of Australia as I can."
Why do you think you were selected for the job? "I really pushed my body and mind to do the best I could—producing numerous videos, getting my friends to rally up support, taking creative photos, and using Twitter to get celebrities' endorsements. "
What are the best perks of the job? "I get to choose the projects myself. If I want to work alongside crocodiles, then I can think up of a cool project that involves Tourism NT and crocodiles. "
What's been the most memorable moment so far?"The most memorable thing happened while on a turtle tracks tour in Darwin. We saved a baby turtle from dehydrating after it hatched. Dug him out of the sand and set him free in the ocean."
