CO FOUNDER & PASSIONATE HEALTH ENTHUSIAST
Meet Adam. He has been a health and nature enthusiast since his early childhood days growing up on a large acreage property in the Gold Coast Hinterland. He’s owned multiple businesses over the last 15 years and from his experience feels strongly that to run a business in today’s world you have a responsibility to do so in an ethical, sustainable and conscious manner. “But most importantly you need to walk your talk and passionately believe in what you do”. He has a strong pull toward spending all his spare time in nature and has experienced first hand that to live in true health your emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing all need to be nourished daily. His grounding anchor in life are his two beautiful kids and the love of his life Megan who happens to be our awesome in house naturopath. If you can’t find him at Bush Tucker Headquarters, you’ll find him in the ocean, hiking or cooking over an open fire.

He has 3 little groms and a beautiful wife to keep him in check and believes that there is nothing more important than family and that a loving and harmonious family unit is the foundation of a happy life.
IN HOUSE BIOMEDICAL NATUROPATH, NUTRITIONIST & HERBALIST
Megan is our very own in house naturopath with a passion for whole-foods and whole-food supplements. She’s completed a 4-year Bachelor of Health Sciences degree. However, she went one step further and completed not one but two bachelor degrees being a Bachelor of Biomedical Science (commonly known as a pre-medicine degree) and Bachelor of Clinical Sciences majoring in naturopathy and complementary medicine.
Megan crammed 8 years of study into 6 years of rigorous academic study in the fields of biochemistry, microbiology, advanced nutrition, human anatomy, physiology, nutrition across the lifespan, medical chemistry, molecular genetics and biology, immunology, basic pharmacology, advanced nutrition and disease, medicinal plants, herbal medicine, human metabolism plus many more. Clearly she’s a great asset to our team but more importantly she spends her spare time being a super mum of 2 and quite often rides her horses into the sunset!
