    My name is Grant Rawlinson – but most people call me ‘Axe’. I am an inspiring keynote speaker, author, mountaineer and human powered adventurer. I am born and bred in New Zealand but now reside in Singapore with my lovely wife Stephanie.

    In December 2016, I will depart on my most challenging expedition yet ‘ROWING from HOME to HOME’. This is an attempt to travel 12,000km from Singapore (my current home) all the way back to New Zealand (my original home), entirely by human power and using a rowing boat as the main mode of transport.
