I joined Travel Nation back in 2005. I took a break from my previous job to do some travelling, when I got back I knocked on our founder Haydn's door and he offered me a role at Travel Nation as a sales consultant. Having created over 2,500 incredible round the world adventures for our customers, I progressed through various roles before I became Managing Director overseeing our UK based team. I grew up in Farnham, then grew up a bit more in Sheffield. I now live out in the Sussex countryside with my wife Liz (who also works at Travel Nation) and our two children. Things I love are football, tennis, my local village pub, cycling, walking in the South Downs and growing a bit of veg!
Farnham. I then lived for 8 years in Sheffield, before heading back down south.
I studied Economics at Sheffield University, then followed that up with a Tourism Management Degree at Sheffield Hallam University.
BA (Hons) degree in Tourism Management, followed by 20+ years working in the travel industry. I started with 5 years as a manager at Flight Centre (UK) Ltd from 2000. I then joined Travel Nation in 2005 to specialise in creating round the world trips of a lifetime. Progressing from our sales team to train our consultants, before becoming Air Product Manager in 2010 with responsibility for all things flight-related. I became a Director in 2016 and as Managing Director I now oversee our UK operation. I'm a firm believer in our ethos that any itinerary is possible no matter how complex. As an independent company we're able to achieve this, and I ensure our teams have all the expertise and support they need to create these amazing itineraries for our customers.
