Entrepreneur & Asia Traveler
As co-founder of the cutting edge Asia travel company Remote Lands, it is my job to explore everywhere and often, from the height of its latest luxuries to the most esoteric of its ancient rituals. What keeps me going is that I have yet to lose my curiosity and respect for the people, cultures and history I discover along this serendipitous career path that astounds even me.
Photography is my passion so there is no greater thrill for me than to capture my awe reflected in the faces of those whom I encounter, from Cambodia to Kazakhstan and from Siberia to Sri Lanka. I have now lived and worked in Asia for more than 20 years; if my knowledge of the region and compassion for these fascinating cultures inspires others to follow my boots on the ground, all the better.
