What's your role, in less than a tweet?

Herding a very talented bunch of cats to create awesome travel software, applications and services for our travellers.

What are you most passionate about?

At work: collaboration and building great teams.

At home: my kids growing from babies into complex, articulate humans.

In Life: Making a difference to the lives of those less fortunate. I'm proud to have co-founded The Footprints Network to help give back.

What are you least passionate about?

Mean people, Sporting quotes "it's a game of two halves" (no shit), Reality TV (apart from the good ones), horror movies.

Where have you just been?

Boston, it was such a beautiful, culturally rich, architecturally intriguing city.

Where are you going next?

Portugal! Heading there to take a summer school course as part of my Wayne Tregaskis Inspiration Scholarship.

Where must you go before you die?

The Moreno Glacier in the Southwest of Argentina. I think I’d better hurry up and get there. Hoping it doesn’t melt before I even grow old.

Video camera, stills camera or pen?

The pen, always mightier!

Favourite travel quote?

Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” Miriam Beard
