Neale Bayly, Moto Journalist – SPEED Channel
Neale Bayly is a SPEED Channel motorcycle photojournalist who travels the world extensively for his job. During an adventure motorcycle ride to Peru he met Father Gio, and learned about his work with the poor and needy in some of the more remote parts of the country. With Gio’s death in 2001, Neale was connected with Father Gio’s sister, Maria Fitzgerald, who has been fundraising for the abandoned children of Moquegua since the early 1990s. This resulted in the forming of Wellspring International Outreach with Dr. Matt Mahar.
