Greg’s professional background in outdoor adventure guiding and instruction started in 1991, focusing on whitewater rafting and kayaking, rock climbing and bushwalking. After completing post-graduate studies in Outdoor Education in 1992, Greg successfully completed instructor certification programs with the Rockclimbing Instructors' Association of Queensland and the Australian Board of Canoe Education. In 1993, he obtained international instructor qualifications in swiftwater rescue and low to high angle rope rescue and went on to become an instructor trainer and assessor for Rescue 3 International.
