Kia Ora!!  I've been leading tours since 2009 and I can honestly say its my dream job.  I chase the summer so I spend April through to November in the Northern Hemisphere leading groups around Europe. My specialty regions are Scandinavia, Russia, The Balkans, Italy, France, Switzerland, Greece and Turkey.  Then in November I head south for the summer returning to my home town of Auckland where I spend the summer months leading multi day tours of the North and South Island of New Zealand. I normally start my season in Europe with an ANZAC tour to Galipoli which is always incredibly special and ties both my homes together.

I was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Asia.  Moved to New Zealand in 1990 and attended high school and university here. I am half kiwi and half British and I feel very lucky to have both passports.  I have spent 1/3 of my life in Asia, 1/3 in New Zealand and 1/3 in Europe and the UK. I am a true citizen of the world, a nomad, and travelling is embedded deep within my psyche. I love exploring this amazing planet and I believe NZ is one of the top destinations in the world.

I am passionate about New Zealand and our special culture and natural beauty and I love showing people the wonders of this amazing land.  In New Zealand I specialise in Food and Wine,  geology, politics, history, current affairs, pop culture and new zealand birds.  I am currently attempting to increase my knowledge of our flora and Fauna.  I know the basics but I am hungry to learn more so I can answer all the questions the guests throw at me.

I have experience leading a wide range of different types of travellers from youths and students, to entire families, large groups, small specialist groups and high end VIP guests that expect an extremely high level of service.  I am professional, personable, energetic and well presented.  Variety is the spice of life right?!

I look forward to welcoming sustainable travellers to Aotearoa.
