I’ve been on the road since 2012. I left home to pursue a life and career within working in travel. Since that time I’ve flew over 90 times, visited over 35 countries whilst backpacking and working. As you can see, I blog regularly but not only for my own blog but for various travel operators and publications. I’ve written for newspapers and radio shows. Check some examples of my work by visiting Media Portfolio.
I’ve been working since I was 17 years old and because of this I have a great, natural work ethic. Basically in short though, I work hard, play hard. I know how to get a job done and that attitude has seen me be relentless with my travels. All my jobs I’ve undertaken have been with great responsibility, senior or management roles. Freelancing is something I’m very passionate about as it allows me to manage my own work time.
I administrate over 40 Facebook Groups for backpackers and travellers which are all separated by region, country and destination. You can find these by visiting Groups.
Just to give you an idea, these total to over 120,000 members who are from all over the world. All my posts are seen, but I have to edit, clean up, approve, advise and many more tasks along with my admins that signifcantly help me out. For the past 4 years this has been a daily task if not a full time job! I have worked with clients previously giving them the platform to promote and get the word out for their travel business, however it has to benefits the members, the company and myself. It has to be relative to what the group is such as Backpacking Europe – all posts need to be relative to travel within Europe.
If there is a project, campaign or deal we can create and grow together then I’m always willing to listen to ideas. I don’t mind working on singular assignments, but ideally I’m looking for long-term relationships working together. I’m going to be continuing hitting the road for a few years yet, blogging and managing these groups will be my work when I travel now. Whatever your assignment, whether its research, reporting, guide writing, photography, social media promotion, marketing, undercover work etc, I’m open to what opportunities you might have.

These have over 120,000 members in them, separated by destinations.
