About me

I am a highly driven tourism professional, with a passion for sustainable tourism, cultural heritage and environmental protection. I have recently finished a Master of International Sustainable Tourism Management at Monash University, Melbourne Australia.

I have six years experience working in the tourism industry in Europe and Australia. In Europe, I worked for tour operator Topdeck, where I helped to train and mentor new road crew and work as part of a team leading groups across Europe. I have experience working as a tour guide in Melbourne and as a Welcome Ambassador at Arts Centre Melbourne, contributing to the visitor experience across venues. Presently, I work for G Adventures as Operations Supervisor for the Oceania region.

I believe that traveling is the greatest way to learn about our world and can contribute to improved livelihoods, heritage protection and appreciation for our environment. I am driven by the diversity and excitement of the tourism industry and thrive working in cross-cultural teams. In my spare time I am likely exploring the cafes and restaurants of Melbourne.
