•Developing Bond Beyond as my ultimate career.

Hobbies include hiking, berg trail running, paddling, fishing, surfskiing and organising group outdoor activities and expeditions with friends.
"I have lead kayak expeditions for the last eight years through different sections of the Orange River. I organise an annual Winter hike in the berg where I take novice hikers into the berg for a taste of the High Berg in my dream for more people to access the wonders of the mountains. Throughout the year I go on day or day/ night hikes where endurance and stamina are challenged in the extreme conditions of multiple passes and weather combined with long distance, often achieving two passes and up to 55km in a day. I organise night cycles through the forests where we live out at Albert Falls Dam. All the above demonstrate my love for adventure and the outdoors and challenging the body physically and mentally in a fun way that results in individual growth."

Todd has a very specific passion to bring the outdoors to young boys and to harness the power of natural environments to nurture our young men and women of tomorrow.
His long term goals are to be involved with key schools and corporates in providing adventure activities.
"This venture highlights my beliefs in man's soul needing exposure to nature as a part of its core development, not just for the physical advantages of accomplishing the feat, nor for the mental satisfaction of accomplishing goals set, but to develop the spirit at its core and thus nurture young lives to become well rounded individuals who can contribute to society in a positive way."
