The International Sea Kayaking Educators Symposium (ISKES) brings together outdoor adventure educators and sea kayaking practitioners from around the world who value both the sea and sea kayaking for their unique and powerful learning potential. The inaugural ISKES took place in Hong Kong in 2015 in collaboration with Outward Bound, and was recently staged at Wilsons Promontory in Australia for the second time (Nov 2018). ISKES 3.0 will take place in the northern Hemisphere in 2020/21 at a location to be announced shortly. Beau founded ISKES in 2014.

Conceptualized as a documentary series (4 x 22 minute episodes), this project looks at the sense of adventure that might be felt in the space between home and work. The film series in currently in production and is expected to be completed in 2019.
My Dad, artist-truckie
My Dad, like yours, is one a kind; interstate truck driver that's also a lifelong, well known artist. He has driven a truck for 50 years to supplement his hand-to-mouth artists life. There's a lot I've learnt from Dad as an observer of life, and so to connect the dots between filmmaker-outdoorsy-son, to artist-trucker-father, this film projects is about how we often mirror the mentors in our life, even in different ways. It's also to take a few more truck trips with Dad as he winds down on interstate driving, to talk about the world, art and politics, backdropped by Australian landscape at 95k an hour.
