When Daisy isn't glued to a computer screen you can find her swimming laps at the pool, riding horses and trying very hard not to be the worst pool player in Mount Isa. Daisy recently completed an 8.7km open-water swim from Magnetic Island to Townsville in 2017 after crocodiles stopped her in 2015. Daisy is very passionate about photography, film and living/working in the Outback!
