I have travelled the world and picked up the right tools to help me create dream experiences for my guests, offering you the best and most honest advice. My journeys have taken me to Australasia, the Far East, Indian Ocean, Middle East, Africa, America, and the Caribbean. Some of my most treasured memories include sipping cocktails on Table Mountain, coming face to face with a great white shark on a cage dive, exploring incredibly remote regions in New Zealand, and immersing myself in authentic local cultures.
My enthusiasm to meet new people and learn the history of our destinations gives me a unique edge to offer you a dream holiday that is truly extraordinary, and one that you will never, ever forget.

My favourite holidays…
My favourite experiences…
Favourite food from a destination I love
I remember sitting on the edge of the harbour in Queenstown, New Zealand, with my legs dangling over the water with views over Lake Wakatipu, eating Fish & Chips. Caught on the day, so fresh and cooked to perfection!
Favourite wildlife encounter
My top wildlife experience has to be either swimming with whale sharks on the Ningaloo Reef or Great White cage diving in South Africa. Both types of sharks came towards me with their mouths open, it’s just a good thing I had a cage around me during one of them! Such exhilarating experiences.
Favourite culture trip
Visiting the Aboriginal Families of the Tiwi Islands, a small set of Islands just off the coast of Northern Territory, Australia.
I'll always remember when…
I still recall the feeling of awe, disbelief and inspiration whilst boarding a helicopter to fly over the Great Barrier Reef. The rotor blades on the helicopter mimicked the butterflies in my stomach as we flew over the world’s largest coral reef system. The outstanding natural beauty of flying over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands was humbling and inspirational. The memory was made complete by snorkelling in the clear turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef after the helicopter ride, I realised that Australia was a destination that would remain with me forever.
