Some people are lucky enough to work in a job doing something that they love; I am one of the lucky ones. Like most people who work in travel, we do it because we love it. I was born in Anguilla and as I grew up I became ever more charmed by the lure of travel, adventure and discovery. At eighteen I made a list of all the places I wanted to explore in the world. It simply read "everywhere". Deciding that this was perhaps not the most concise list, I set off with my backpack to South East Asia and immersed myself in the culture. From then on I was well and truly bitten by the travel bug and over the past few years have continued my journey of discovery throughout the world including Australia, Morocco, Canada, Abu Dhabi and Brazil. With A&K I have the opportunity to help people plan their perfect holiday whilst still pursuing my dream of exploring our diverse and beautiful planet. My role as an Africa specialist with Abercrombie & Kent has allowed me to travel to South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania and Mauritius.

Best piece of travel advice?

My top tip for an African safari is to wear neutral coloured clothes; animals will flee bright colours and tsetse flies are attracted to dark shades-their bite can be really painful!

After graduating from University, and leaving the green fields of Devon behind, I opted to travel instead of immediately joining the daily rugby scrum on the London Underground. Travelling extensively through South Africa, Botswana, Malawi, Kenya and Tanzania; visiting North India’s Hill Stations and the Golden Triangle; taking an overnight train to the vibrant wonder that is Varanasi and then basking in the tranquillity of the Annapurna Mountains in Nepal. More recently I've taken part in some more adventurous travelling including climbing Kilimanjaro and Stok Kangri in Ladakh, India. Visiting New Zealand’s stunning mountains and Fiord Lands of the West Coast also holds a very special place in my heart. All of these experiences gave me a travel bug that I still haven’t shaken off and I now wishes to use this passion for travel to design experiences of a lifetime to clients. However, I still like to pop back to Devon every now and then for a cream tea.

Last five countries visited?
New Zealand, India, Nepal, Morocco, Italy

What has been your favourite travel experience?
Very difficult question! I would have to say that seeing the Taj Mahal at sunrise is still my most memorable experience. I had dreamt of seeing it, and it more than matched my expectations.

Favourite/most impressive natural wonder?
Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, or the Himalaya’s in Nepal.

Favourite animal?


The best hotel that you have stayed in?
Raffles, Singapore

Your favourite restaurant?

Els 4 Gats (‘The 4 Cats’) in Barcelona

Essential item that you always take with you on your travels?

Your one luxury when you travel?


What's your best piece of travel advice?

Have an open mind. The fondest moments that I remember when travelling were usually unexpected and certainly not planned.

Where you would like to visit next and why?

Argentina – the topography of the country fascinates me. From bustling Buenos Aires to panoramic Patagonia, I want to see it all!

Having grown up in Hong Kong and with my family scattered around the world I have been afforded the opportunity to travel from a young age. As soon as I was old enough, I struck off on my own to remote regions in Mongolia, Tibet, East Africa and Morocco. Having completed a geography degree at university I decided my passion for travel and yearning to learn about the world would be best served in the travel industry. Over the last 10 years I have met some incredibly interesting people, seen some amazing places and had a great time doing it!

Last five countries visited?
Mozambique, Botswana, Italy, St Lucia, Iceland

Favourite travel experience?
Although I love Asia and India - Sundowners in Africa are hard to beat!!

Favourite animal?

Snow Leopard - I was lucky enough to see one in the wild in Ladakh, India.

Best Hotel?
Clayquot Wilderness Resort, Canada
