I graduated in Accounting from Loughborough University and joined Frontier in September 1998. My 12 years experience at Frontier has provided me with a real insight into everything about volunteering – what makes a great project, how to help volunteers get the most out of their time abroad and, most importantly, how to choose the projects that make a real and lasting difference.
I have strong opinions on global issues and will be doing my best to provide information and articles that help gap year travellers and volunteers make the most of their time abroad.

After graduating from Sussex University with a philosophy degree, and wondering what on earth to do with it, I completed my TESOL qualification to teach English to speakers of other languages. Having previously discovered a passion for travel and community development I put my TESOL to good use and embarked on a two and a half year adventure through the Far East, South East Asia and Australasia. After tracking down the elusive Komodo Dragons in Indonesia, Climbing 'Mount Doom' and volunteering in a small village in Laos I returned to the UK to help others take part in similar experiences through Frontier.
I am an avid reader and writer and will be sharing my thoughts on a diverse range of subjects, from wildlife in Asia to nightlife in Australia!

After a fantastic year in 2008 living and working in Argentina and Costa Rica, I knew I had been bitten by the adventure travel bug. Working in the marketing team of a popular language school in Buenos Aries, I very quickly became aware of the hugely positive and transformative effects of an extended trip abroad can have. I saw and met many fellow travellers who were having the time of their lives, learning new skills and experiencing new diverse cultures.
Although I have a particular interest in South America, I will be providing articles and commenting on a wide range of global issues.
