I've had almost 20 years’ experience in the travel industry, always specialising in holidays to Australia and New Zealand with worldwide stopovers.
I'm a born and bred Londoner with lots of my family now living in New Zealand, hence the numerous visits! My last being for a 3 month career break. I fell in love with Australia the first time I visited in 1995 and have visited almost every year since.
Apart from travelling, I love music and going to live gigs. I enjoy the cinema and fancy restaurants, all of which keep me poor but happy!
Brighton Polytechnic...now Brighton University (that shows my age!)
I first met Haydn (MD of Travel Nation) almost 20 years ago when I started as a trainee travel consultant at Bridge The World. I stayed there for 9 years, going on to help launch the luxury Australia & New Zealand specialist, Bridge & Wickers in 2005. It's here that I learned to appreciate the joy of business class flights and luxury hotels! After 8 years, Bridge & Wickers became part of The Ultimate Travel Company and I stayed on whilst the transition was completed. When I found out that Travel Nation were looking to launch tailor-made holidays to Australia & New Zealand, I jumped at the opportunity of joining this specialist team.
