River is a dear friend and colleague. His humanity, intellect and spirit makes him engaging and inspiring company. He's always been a thoughtful and generous host, welcoming me in to his home with warmth. I'd jump at the opportunity to have him stay!
River is a lovely, friendly and responsible person to share a home with- we have lived together for several years. He's not afraid to contribute by cleaning, cooking, or just caring! I would recommend him to bring something positive to any home.
River started as a colleague and ended as a friend. We spent years working together on a stressful project, and we would often go out for a meal at the end of the day. That turned into weekend bike rides and generally keeping each other company. I've traveled using his recommendations and found them flawless. I'd welcome him into my home any time.
I've known River for a number of years through the sprawling Melbourne community, and always feel enriched by his humour and wisdom. I'm happy to think that my son will grow up with his son as an older peer.
There couldn't be a better testament to River's character than the humility and generosity with which he orchestrates Dancing Ground Festival - (he's created a beautiful safe and creative, drug and alcohol free, family friendly long weekend festival - (website hidden) it).
I've travelled with River in Bali and he's welcome in my house anytime. We have a large circle of friends in Melbourne that we've shared for over 10 years and it was great to spend some time with him on the road.
I know River to be easy going, conscientous, thoughtful and great fun. He's a seasoned traveller, house-trained and a pleasure to be around.
