Paul Carter


Taking postings in some of the world’s wildest and most remote regions, not to mention some of the roughest drilling rigs on the planet, Paul Carter has worked, gotten into trouble and been given serious talking’s to in locations as far-flung as the North Sea, Middle East, Borneo and Tunisia, as exotic as Sumatra, Vietnam and Thailand, and as flat out dangerous as Afghanistan, Columbia, Russia, and Nigeria.

Paul survived all this with his crew, some of the maddest, baddest, and strangest people you could hope not to meet. Career highlights include being locked in the toilet by his own monkey, being assaulted by a midget and dysentery on a commercial airliner.

Twenty years in the making, this story teller has three international bestselling books.
