My Background

My passion for adventure and unique travel experiences led me to be a tour leader for three years in Egypt and on overland adventures through the Middle East and Africa. I also worked on the operations side and organized overland trips through Africa and the Middle East while based in England. After a couple years in New Zealand exploring I was finally ready for the journey back to Canada, calling Calgary home. I continue to explore my own country while planning my next adventure with my family.

Working with groups all over Africa & in New Zealand has led me to the groups & customized department at Civilized Adventures. I look forward to organizing your next adventure or family travel.
