My curiosity for travel was ignited at the age of 8 when my parents took me on a 4 month trip around Europe in a VW campervan. My next trip was to watch the Euro ’96 football tournament in England and a 2 year working holiday visa in the UK. Two years turned into four and in the midst of that I co-founded the BootsnAll Travel Network with Sean Keener. Following my love for the Beautiful Game, I have been to World Cups in Germany and South Africa and try to play on teams in whatever country I find myself in. More recently I lived in New Zealand for over 3 years and fell in love with it. During that time my girlfriend became my fiance and then my wife and we look forward to a time when we can live there again. Now, after almost 20 years of moving around and working with BootsnAll I am back “home” in Australia – but there’s plenty more travelling to do! I joined the AirTreks team in 2015 and love talking to people excited about planning their big trips. No two trips are the same and there is always more to learn.
