Meet Christy McCarthy

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?

Plastic.  People who don't recycle. Crappy food.

Where have you just been?

Portugal, to study at a summer school! Bring on the food, culture, language and food (oh, did I say that already?).

Where are you going next?

Fiji to go scuba diving - it's been too many years since I've been to that magical world under the sea

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.  Also,  Spain and anywhere I can see the Northern Lights

Video camera, stills camera or pen?

The pen, always mightier!

Favourite travel quote?

"Never journey without something to eat in your pocket. If only to throw to dogs when attacked"  --E.S. Bates
and "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
