Meet the crew
Henry Brydon / Founder

Founder of We Are Explorers, he's always on the rummage for fresh experiences, adventure and all round soul nourishment. He rode a push bike from London to Sydney over two years in search of the ultimate adventure; a 38,000km journey through 30 countries that showed him the beauty of the world and the relieving qualities of chafage cream.

Tim Ashelford / Head of Editorial

Tim's been ridin' the WAE train for 4 years now and he's loved every minute. While trail running's his main squeeze, he can also be found riding bikes, surfboards, skis, or hanging by his fingertips in the Bluies. While he loves pushing his limits in the outdoors, Tim can also be found at Aussie gigs, in totally over the top coffee shops, and reading everything in sight.

Bee Stephens / Digital Campaign Producer

Bee loves the ocean and exploring the outdoors. Grabbing photos and stories whilst she adventures in Oz and if her pennies allow on trips overseas. She's the happiest surfing in Byron with her friends or hiking through local National Parks!

Jonathan Tan / Social Media Manager & Campaign Producer

Jono is a creator with an adventurous spirit. His love for wild places developed from his experiences with the natural world around the globe and he's happiest when sharing the stoke of the outdoors with others. With a passion for documenting the real stories beyond the big smoke, he's always primed for the next adventure.

Amy Fairall / News and Features Editor

Since her first overseas trip to the tiny island nation of Kiribati, Amy has been hankering to discover all of the lesser-known places. An avid environmentalist, Amy is passionate about doing her part to keep nature wild and preserve it for the next-gen of Explorers (and this one too, let’s be real). A jack of all adventures but master of none, she'll give everything a go once.

Sian Brain / Digital Campaign Coordinator

Sian's ideal adventure involves climbing mountains, crossing rivers and ideally ending at the pub! She loves to set off on solo trips and soak in the silence. At home, you can find her watching Italian movies, reading a classic, or most likely of all, planning the next adventure!

Matt Wiseman / Gear Editor

Matt is a skier, photographer and writer, and he hasn’t really settled on the order of those three pursuits. He’s skied all over the world and rediscovered his fear of heights dropping into a line on a volcano on a small Japanese Island with views of Russia. When he’s not getting vertigo he lives at sea level in Sydney and surfs. He takes weeks to decide whether to purchase anything from a t-shirt to a tent, so he makes for a scrupulous Gear Editor.

Teige O'Sullivan / Sales & Partnerships Manager

From bush bashing the nature reserve behind his hometown in NZ as a grom, to exploring 3000m high peaks with his snowboard in the Georgian Caucasus mountains, Teige developed a love for travel and the outdoors at an early age and has not looked back. When at home, he's happiest cooking up a feed for a couple of good mates, playing golf horribly or exploring the beautiful beaches and hinterland of the NSW Far North Coast.
