Beau Miles. Award winning filmmaker, poly-jobist, speaker, odd.

On a recent crossing of Bass Strait in a sea kayak, Beau was voted 5th worst dressed in a party of 5. Being offbeat and NQR speaks volumes about how Beau goes about life and represents himself to the world, believing wholeheartedly that we're all weird. His offbeat stories of adventure exemplify a curious view of the human condition.

Home truths: Bass Strait in a salad bowl

Days after an expedition are odd. I eat a ridiculous amount of fresh food. Veggies and Salad consume me. I become regular again. Routine is picked up as if the handle was turned my way, waiting. Here I sit, home on the range (my pocket sized farm), with drizzle making…

What’s my Gripe?

I drink an average amount of coffee. Recently, my 1-2 a day has gone though the roof. Granted, I’ve been in, at, close-to, or anticipating an airport and the people-stuffed cavities of all things air-travel for 20 odd days. For it, I’ve slept in fits and prolonged coma’s and covered…
