Born and raised in beautiful remote Torres Strait (Zenadth Kes) where the ocean was a part of life growing up.  It provided him many things from food, employment, adventure and peace!
Having travelled all over the world for work, sport and adventures the ocean was one connection back to home and family. 

Growing up in a small community, Dennis was taught valuable lessons of respect and helping people which followed him everywhere he travelled such as volunteering in Africa to help protect the wildlife.  He still continues to participate in activities when possible like donating seafood to charities serving the community or raising money to help those in need. 

His current role as a leading fire fighter in Cairns allows him to help community safety and work on his passion of building the Salty Monkeys and community to bigger and better things in the future.
