Isn't Travel Massive the coolest thing ever? Big ups to Ian and the team for starting it in the first place and for all of the amazing opportunities and friendships it has already brought to so many.
Born in the UK, I now live in Byron Bay and have been working in our glorious travel Industry for the last 16 years. I've also lived in New Zealand, Argentina, The Channel Islands, Greece and Brazil for extended periods.
5 years ago I started KARRYON.COM.AU as a news and lifestyle portal for the Travel industry.
With a Head Office and growing team in Sydney, KARRYON.COM.AU is positioned as 'The voice of the travel Industry' with its goal, much like Travel Massive's to connect, inform and inspire the wider travel community to share their experiences of the world and the people they meet along the way.
So far it's been a lot of fun and has already claimed its #1 spot as the fastest growing trade media channel in Australia.
Degree trained in advertising and design in London, I've worked as Creative Director on many of the industries leading travel brands across all sectors and also have my own boutique Creative agency - KARRYON STUDIO which works to serve the travel and lifestyle industry in conjunction with KARRYON.COM.AU
Some of my other more random (and more important some would say) life experiences have included promoting a leading dance club in the UK & Ibiza, working as a tour guide in a WWII German War Tunnel in the Channel Islands, a Champagne waiter for British Royalty at the Cartier Polo tournament at Windsor Castle and a National league basketball player for a team in Mendoza, Argentina. All roles that I firmly believe have only added to the creative fabric of my life and thinking.
I'm really excited about Travel Massive and look forward to meeting you at the next event.
In the meantime, travel on and enjoy every precious second of this wonderful journey...
