Richard Pain is a filmmaker and businessman. He’s passionate about the environment. And he likes a swim. Richard departs Brisbane for Sydney December 2016, swimming 1,000 miles in 4 months.

When Richard, inspired by Louis Phisoyos’s Oscar® winning documentary ‘The Cove’, heard about The Great Pacific Garbage Patch he decided to do something about it.

A father of four children, Richard also loves the ocean, dogs and bananas with Greek yoghurt. And he tries to keep himself nice (lol) with ocean swimming and crossfit. His favourite movie is Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. His second favourite movie is Babe.
